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.

With more than 50 participants and 4 international speakers on stage, AdNovum enjoyed hosting the 2017 edition of the CognitiveBrain. Peter Gassmann, CCO AdNovum opened the CognitiveBrain with insights on how AI and ethics will change now and in the future. Prof. Urs Gasser, Executive Director Berkman Small Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University followed with his keynote speech and introduction to the subsequent panel discussion moderated by Andi Staub (FehrAdvice & Partners AG), with Astrid Maier (WirtschaftsWoche), Sandra Cortesi (Director of Youth and Media, Berkman Small Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University) and Prof. Urs Gasser and Peter Gassmann.
