Honors Seminar - "Artificial Intelligence"
T/R 2:30 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Soro, Kasili

What are the techniques that enable computers to behave intelligently? What are some of the opportunities, challenges, and problems introduced by the emergence and growth of artificial intelligence? Artificial intelligence (AI) addresses questions at the intersection of many fields, including computer science, economics, bioinformatics, medicine, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology. It is a part of our everyday lives: googling some keywords, speaking into your phone to compose a text, using Facebook's facial recognition to tag people in a photo, playing chess against a computer, and using Google Translate to read a sign that is not in your language--these are all examples of AI in action. There are difficult ethical issues that emerge in relation to AI, such as the ways implicit biases are built into algorithms used to predict crime, the impact of robots on labor in the global economy, and the debate over whether intelligent computers deserve human rights.

“Social justice is amiable formal, informal interaction and the impartial distribution of resources for a community.” (Cook, 2019). Too often, we hear about social injustices rather than the moments of communities coming together. In our society, media is a powerful agent to disseminate cultural and racial images of groups. In the past, harmful images have surfaced. A noticeable change is present with the creation of Netflix. However, is it enough? This course will explore Black history, social justice, and the representation of both in American Cinema.

Spring 2018 Honors Seminars

HON 200-M2 #Resist
Prof. Andre Robinson and Meghan Callaghan
Monday,  6 - 8:45 p.m. B218

The themes of this seminar center upon issues fundamental to our values as a democratic republic -- free speech, political participation, equity, and social justice. This course looks at the broader history of protest, analyzing both individual and collective acts of resistance in order to understand why some succeed while others fail. We look at the role of technology and other factors. Students will participate in weekly discussions, conduct original research, and submit a final project.

HON 201H Ideas that Change the World
Prof. Alejandro Reuss of UMass Amherst
Wednesday, 2:30 – 5:15 p.m. B135-A

HON 201H is a small, discussion-based interdisciplinary seminar. As an interdisciplinary seminar, this course illuminates ideas that cross the boundaries of the sciences and the humanities. Course materials draw from a range of influential works that raise issues of enduring importance. Throughout the semester we will examine groundbreaking ideas that have shaped our world, while also inquiring into our own potential for transformative creativity, innovation, and leadership.

Comprised of four units, each unit is organized around 1-2 primary texts/films, the writings of W.E.B. Du Bois, and supplemental readings at the discretion of the instructor (all materials available online).

Important Additional Information about HON 201H: This seminar is not visible in BHCC SelfService because it is offered by UMass Amherst. The course is free for students who are members of the Commonwealth Honors Program at BHCC. This course also transfers as an honors seminar to any Massachusetts Commonwealth Honors Program, provided that students earn a final grade of B or higher in the course.
