Event Details

Recent years have seen astonishing advances in artificial intelligence technology, which is becoming inescapable in every sector – especially medical research, the economy, defense, the environment and transportation. With AI on the verge of revolutionizing our societies, controlling and managing it are vital to safeguarding national sovereignty and respect for human beings.

What are the economic, scientific and ethical stakes of artificial intelligence? Will humans become obsolete in certain industries? Can we hope to see the creation of new jobs? Will AI affect our democracy by exploiting our personal data? How can we create an artificial intelligence that is responsible and respectful of human rights on a global scale? What controls and limits can be placed on artificial intelligence so that it becomes a tool for the benefit of humanity?
