Bishop Barron on Saint Thomas Aquinas' Writing.

Fascinating.  From May 9, 2011.  We desperately need to follow the example of St. Thomas Aquinas.

Fifth Annual Aquinas Leadership International World Congress

Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, Huntington, NY. July 20, 2018 to July 22, 2018

Another wonderful congress. It is always great to be in the company of the best minds in Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance philosophy. 

The conference theme, "Artificial Intelligence and the Futures of Philosophy, Global Leadership, and World Peace" was brilliant and enlightening. It brought speakers together from academia, industry, and government to discuss how society should move forward with the advance of AI.  

Should we fear or embrace AI? Conference participants grappled with this issue in addition to discussing the consequences of an untethered AI to common moral principles. I suggested that philosophers and scientists make a concerted effort to discuss how to go about this and we will continue to discuss this topic at next year's Aquinas Leadership conference.
