New Perspectives on Compassion:
Stanford University and the University of Edinburgh

Join CCARE and the University of Edinburgh for a half-day mini-conference exploring the frontiers of compassion research. Scholars from the two institutions will provide short presentations of new work on a variety of perspectives on compassion, including neuroscience, health care, psychology and business.

The event will culminate in a distinguished panel addressing the cutting edge of compassion research involving artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics: The Compassionate Robot: Myth, Nightmare, or Solution? This panel will be anchored by Sir Timothy O’Shea, The Principal of University of Edinburgh, who has explored computer-based learning and artificial intelligence in over 10 books and 100 articles.

Other distinguished scholars include Jon Oberlander, Professor of Epistemics at the University of Edinburgh, whose work focuses on building machines who can adapt themselves to people, and the Rev. Professor Jane Shaw, Dean for Religious Life and Professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University, who is currently working on a project involving empathy, the arts, and social change.

There is no charge for admission to this event, but registration is required.
