Event details

This event by the Centre for Business in Society will analyse the relationship between AI and ethics, and the potential impact of AI on society.


The AI field is living a new Spring. At the same time, both an incontrollable hype with exaggerated views about what is truly possible eclipses its advancements, and ethical concerns on the negative implications of AI technologies rise. However, the latter are the ones that are seen as obstacles for progress. This talk puts AI ethics where they belong.
