This conference invites us to reflect on the ethical issues raised by linguistic and affective nudge* in our interactions with chatbots and conversational robots, and to question the consequences for society. Following a study* carried out by the Collège des Bernardins’ Digital Humanism research team, in partnership with the CNRS HUMAAINE Human-Affective Interaction & Ethics chair at LISN, Université Paris-Saclay, researchers specializing in AI and social robotics, linguistics, behavioral economics, philosophy and theology will be on hand to discuss the issues based on their work and reflections.
