AI FOR ALL - From the Dark side to the Light

Self-driving cars, face recognition, digital money, smart vaccines. The world is evolving fast, with Artificial intelligence (AI) at the forefront. But there is a dark side, as AI is not neutral. It sometimes even divides our society.

Date :  25 November 2022 | 13:30 - 17:00
Location :  Evoluon, Eindhoven

Self-driving cars, face recognition, digital money, smart vaccines. The world is evolving fast, with Artificial intelligence (AI) at the forefront. But there is a dark side, as AI is not neutral. It sometimes even divides our society.

You enjoy the ease of paying with your smartphone, but for beggars it ends their income. Opening a door with facial recognition is quick and safe. The same technology can also lock out population groups, like the Uyghurs in China. Older people often have problems adapting to new technologies. The risk of leaving them behind is growing. 

Our speakers debate their visions with two top scientists, in a discussion moderated by Koert van MensvoortWe are proud to announce that Bruce Sterling, the internationally famous author, journalist, editor and critic will share his expectations.

 

I'm a hardened skeptic about 'hard AI' and 'Artificial General Intelligence,'  but I'm nevertheless a big fan of neural nets, machine learning, deep learning, and text-to-image generators.
Generally speaking, the stupider artificial intelligence is, the better I like it!

Bruce Sterling, Key Note Speaker
