“In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made significant strides in various industries, from healthcare to finance and beyond. The technology is being used for tasks such as diagnosing diseases, automating mundane jobs and even creating art. However, with these advancements come concerns about the future of jobs, privacy and ethics.”

AI Regulation & Business/Communications


James Porter

, PhD

Professor of English and Emerging Technology in Business & Design


Miami University


Our legislative system needs to address these issues. So far it has been slow to keep up with technological changes— particularly related to AI developments—and in the U.S. there is an unfortunate tendency, by some, to see regulation as a dirty word, as inimical to entrepreneurship. The EU is ahead of the US in recognizing that standards and guidance are ultimately good for business, because they promote the development of products that protect the rights and safety of citizens, versus trying to backtrack and regulate products only after clear harms result.

Porter is currently examining how AI technology development is changing professional communication practices, from the standpoint of rhetoric and ethics.

Gambling & Addiction


Matthew McMurray


Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology


Miami University


Quote in reference to research on addiction and gambling: “If we expose those rats to chronic stress, we see their decision-making gets bad. They prefer the risky option regardless of its probability, just like a gambling addict. When we treat those stressed animals with psilocybin, their decision making gets much better.”

My research program seeks to understand the neurobiological factors associated with decision-making, drug abuse, and adolescent development. It is particularly focused on how these factors change over the lifespan and interact with each other to drive complex behavior and disease. My current research involves psilocybin and how it effects decision making and addition.

Crime & Trauma


Pamela Garber


Psychotherapist

Never Walk Alone – NYC

“When random street crime hits one person, our entire way of life is bruised.”

As a therapist in private practice, I can discuss the impact street crime has on our quality of life, with particular emphasis on how trauma survivors are impacted by random street crime, the redirecting of therapy sessions to accommodate the pressing topic of crime, various business and family matters spurred on from crime. In addition, the passive mentality of “acceptance” of this so-called new normal and how responding to crime with acceptance is both a breeding ground for victimhood and a threat to our way of life on all levels-from commerce, education, dating, family, and faith.
