Upcoming talk on automating invention at the MIT Technology and Culture Forum

I will be giving a talk on computer-automated inventing and its philosophical and ethical implications at MIT on Thursday, March 6 from 4:30pm-6pm in Room E51-315 (campus map). In the talk I will give a preview of some of the examples of computer-automated inventing that I will describe in more detail in my upcoming book, and explain how the inventive processes behind them are already raising new questions about what it means to be an inventor and the ethical responsibilities of inventors.

The talk is sponsored by the MIT Technology and Culture Forum.
