Pascal Finette on the key questions of Artificial Intelligence
19 June 2019 at Tieranatomisches Theater in Berlin: At the fourth episode of our AI&I event series Pascal Finette and Alexander Görlach will discuss the global impact of artificial intelligence.
In the face of rapid technological and social change, more and more people seem to be losing faith in progress. This is the result of our Tech Divide* study. The current debate on the risks of Artificial Intelligence in particular in Europe is a manifestation of an increasing technophobia. Some key questions have not been answered yet: In which world do we actually want to live in the future? How can AI help to solve some of the most pressing challenges humankind is facing? How can we best leverage the opportunities of AI for our societies – from saving resources, advancing health and providing better education? What mindset do we need to succeed?
The fourth edition of our discussion series AI&I is focused on the subject of Newtopia: What kind of world do we want to live in? on 19 June 2019, 7.30 pm at Tieranatomisches Theater, Philippstraße 13, 10115 Berlin.
Professor Alexander Görlach will discuss the impact of Artificial Intelligence on our societies with Pascal Finette. Pascal, co-founder and enfant terrible at radical Ventures and Singularity University’s Chair for Entrepreneurship & Open Innovation, has spent his career pushing the boundaries of technology and passionately believes it can profoundly impact the betterment of humankind.
