On Wednesday (24 March 2021) I participated in the Webinar series on “AI and Religion,” hosted by the Bruno Kessler Foundation (information about the webinar series available here).
My topic was: “Predicting and Preventing Religious Conflict using Multi-Agent Artificial Intelligence (MAAI) Models” (abstract available here).
Here is a link to the video, which has just been posted on YouTube.
The PPT for my presentation is available here.
