Seminar 'AI & Ethics'

May 30 2018, 3:00 PM


Is it ethical that Facebook knows more of you than even your closest friends?

AI will revolutionize the way we look at data and our business models will change rapidly. How can AI be made to benefit the people and not only the large corporates developing it? AI poses fundamental questions about how we want to live our lives, together with others in a digital society. Key in this is a trusted relationship of the individual with the AI’s that surround him/her. How can AI respect and promote the freedom of the people?

During this seminar we will not only discuss the technology part of this debate, but will emphasize on the ethical side of AI discussion. How do we, as a human society, relate to AI?
