CognitiveBrain

Human {vs/and/or} Machine: Ethics and Governance in the Age of AI


AdNovum Informatik AG, Roentgenstrasse 22, 8005 Zurich
Friday, November 24, 2017


While there is reasonable hope that superhuman killer robots won’t catch us anytime soon, narrower types of AI-based technologies have started changing our daily lives: AI applications are rolled out at an accelerated pace in schools, homes, and hospitals, with digital leaders such as high tech, telecom, and financial services among the early adopters. AI promises enormous benefits for the social good and can improve human well-being, safety, and productivity, as anecdotal evidence suggests. But it also poses significant risks for workers, developers, firms, and governments alike, and we as a society are only beginning to understand the ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges associated with AI, as well as develop appropriate governance models and responses. In his keynote, Urs Gasser will share a series of observations about the forces at play and offer reflections on the big open questions at the intersection of AI technology, governance, and ethics. Event participation and networking lunch is included with registration.


The 1st part will be streamed and held in English, the second part will not be streamed and will be held in German.
