Science and Society: AI-the Promises and Risks We Humans Have Created.

June 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On Tuesday June 27th at 2 PM in the Gathering Place we will view the documentary called How Artificial Intelligence is Changing our Society.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing our lives. It touches on all aspects of society – private life, business, security – including in the spread of fake news and the challenges posed by the advent of autonomous weapons. This documentary looks at the rapid change digitalization is causing as it unfolds. Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence are opening completely new horizons. In their film about AI, Tilman Wolff and Ranga Yogeshwar examine the role AI plays in the spread of fake news. They also consider a future with robots and the risks and ethical questions posed by the development of autonomous weapons. To address these issues, they travel the globe to speak with leading experts. AI can generate perfectly forged sound and videos, making it effective for purveying fake news. Discerning the truth from fiction is becoming increasingly difficult. Technology will streamline work, making some jobs outmoded. Software will pilot self-driving cars and aerial drones. AI is rapidly opening new vistas, but turning blind corners at high speeds can be risky. How sensible is this type of progress, and at what point should society step in and set limits for its development?
