4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Vernor Vinge, a famous science-fiction writer, wrote about the "technological singularity" as a point in civilization when changes stop being controllable. In the view of some, when artificial intelligences become self-aware and show autonomous purpose, humanity will be faced with deep moral questions and perhaps our very survival.


Mich Kabay has been a programmer since 1965, a professor of computer science since 1977, and an operations and security specialist since 1980. He teaches the "Politics of Cyberspace" course at Norwich University, where he is Professor of Computer Information Systems in the School of Cybersecurity, Data Science and Computing. He has been an invited lecturer on information warfare at the US Army War College, the Pentagon, and NATO Counterintelligence training.
