A Fast Moving Technology like AI

Lunch Talk by the HIIG at 12.00 – 2.00 pm on the societal impact of artificial intelligence with Wolfgang Schulz (Director of the Hans-Bredow-Institut for Media Research and HIIG), Ulrike Klinger (Professor for Digital Communication, Freie Universität Berlin) and Nicklas Lundblad (Vice President, Public Policy and Government Relations EMEA at Google). The panel will be moderated by Lena Ulbricht (Research group leader Quantification and Social Regulation, Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society).

We will seek to explore and exchange views on the shifts, tensions and new perspectives that innovations bring to the field of artificial intelligence and their social consideration, addressing questions such as:

•  How will AI affect social relations in the future?

•  Should there be limits to AI? Who should determine them?

•  How does this affect our society?

•  Does/should it have implications on our governance structures?

Afterwards, there will be the opportunity for further exchange over lunch.

 The event will be held in English.
