Panel 3 | Nearest neighbour | The future of living with AI
No one can predict the future of society in coexistence with machines, but it should be clear that our future will be much more predictable if we responsibly decide today what kind of future we want. A society led by elites is simply not sustainable, so we have no choice but to build an inclusive world that becomes more sustainable, safe and ethical, also with the help of incredibly capable technology. Properly thought-out algorithms, collaborative technology, data democracy, and other tools that can be moderated with the help of artificial intelligence should create a better future for humanity and the ecosystem in which it lives. Invited to this panel, experts in computer science, urbanism, and think tanks on technology and society will talk about the challenges of the society of the future and will jointly discuss our chances of taking the right path to a better tomorrow, today.
What future do we want with AI?
Panel 4 | Hack-à-Deux | Creative collaborations among art and science
Working on the notion of AI as our “nearest neighbour”, three teams of artists and AI experts have elaborated over the course of two days several prototypes of artistic, research, and innovation projects. In this panel, they present the outcomes of their collaborations, bridging the perceived gap between science and the humanities and bringing forth the strengths of a multidisciplinary approach to the challenges presented by AI.
