AI & Society – Contemplating our Future

Throughout the semester we frequently organise Data Science Meetups, where we invite speakers to share their recent projects, interesting papers or experiences. Moreover, we provide you insights fascinating companies and institutes, by offering workshops, and field trips. But what would all that be without being able to apply your skills? That’s why we host our two flagship events, the Datathon and Hack4Good.

AI & Society – Contemplating our Future

2021-06-02 @ 18:30 - 20:00


AI & Society is our new series of panel discussions! We have invited experts from academia, industry and the public sector to talk about the impact that Artificial Intelligence has and will have on our society. Whatever your concerns and questions are, you have the opportunity to drive the conversation.You will not be a mere bystander but by posing questions and raising points in a web application you can actively influence the points discussed.

The topic?
“Machine Learning and discrimination: Part of the Problem or a Solution?”.

During the last decades, information technologies – from personal computers and smartphones to the internet, AI, and robotics – have become ubiquitous. While today these tools dictate the everyday life of many, their functioning is understood by few.

AI & Society is our newest event series to raise awareness about the social implications of current advances in information processing technology within as well as beyond academic institutions. We aim to promote a culture of responsible innovation and animate the discussion about the ethical usage of technology across academic disciplines as well as within the general public. Thus, contributing to a more democratically funded, deliberate application of technology that helps to improve the physical, mental, and social well-being of people across the globe.

Sounds interesting ? Then sign up for our first AI & Society event!
