Is everything taken care of? The future of artificial intelligence

A dialogue with the RiffReportern in the form of a “commons debate”

December 3, 2019, 6:00 p.m. (CET)

Artificial intelligence is making the world’s most powerful even more powerful, because it gives them control of the population. Citizens of the world are becoming dispensable as workers, because machines will soon be able to do most tasks better than people. Is this our future? We think that people have a right to voice their own opinions on this topic and we would like to invite you to join a debate about what we can do to control these developments. Student production teams will be helping with this event.

Format of a “commons debate”:
Inspired by the British House of Commons, this discussion format offers a varied and exciting form of dialogue.
