Artificial Intelligence and Psychoanalysis: Meeting the Future - Rosa Spagnolo

How can neuropsychoanalysis help us to understand Artifical Intelligence? We encounter Artificial Intelligence everyday, which is modeled to a certain extent on human consciousness, and so AI gives us a view into what we know and what we may not know about ourselves. In addition, we now develop our sense of self and others both within the virtual and material worlds – AI could be said therefore to not only be modeled on human consciousness, but it is also impacting our development. In this podcast episode, Dr. Rosa Spagnolo discusses consciousness, artificial intelligence and the development of superintelligent AI. She considers what this implies for human and AI development, identifications, subjectivity, and suffering, leveraging neuropsychoanalytic understandings of the mind.

Dr. Rosa Spagnolo is a child neuropsychiatrist, developmental psychotherapist and psychoanalyst member of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society and the IPA. She is co-chair and co-founder of the Italian Psychoanalytic Dialogues Association. Dr. Spagnolo is a member, regional coordinator and chair of the Italian group of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society. She teaches at several institutions and is a sought-after speaker at national and international conferences. She has written several books and articles on a variety of topics including: Eating disorders, group analytic psychotherapy, neuropsychoanalysis, and neuropsychiatric developmental disorders. She was nominated for the Gradiva award in 2019.
