The evolution and emergence of "intelligence" takes winding paths and in doing so is not only remade, but redefined. What has been called "artificial intelligence" is now differentiated from "synthetic intelligence". Join renowned AI researcher and University of California San Diego professor Benjamin Bratton to discuss this critical juncture between the artificial and synthetic. Moderated by Concordia University’s Orit Halpern, this talk will outline and examine these two different models of machine intelligence, and probe their implications.

The synthetic may include, for example, momentary and conditional collaborations between human and machine intelligence toward new insights and abstractions. The critical questions then involve the technical and epistemological status of models, and in turn, a distinction between sentience and sapience and how each relates differently to organic and inorganic sensing. The function of the model for planetary scale computation is well-understood by, for example, climate science, but for world-embedded forms of machine intelligence, relays between partial models based on different modes of sensing and abstraction require synthesis. As an interface between users and contexts, natural language processing may prove to be a decisive medium of co-abstraction, articulation, expression and organization. At stake are: what models, what languages, what contexts, and for what purposes?
