Title:  Artificial Intelligence – are we heading towards a “better world”?

Abstract:

Recently the subject of AI has been under a lot of debate in the public’s eye. Several famous (non AI) researchers are weighing in on the issue and the mayor part of it is presented from a negative viewpoint.

This is obviously endangering all our future livelihoods (we need that funding), and warrants some discussion. Therefore Sander and Kat will be briefly talking, commenting and discussing about the dangers and advantages of AI. After that we invite all of you to a public discussion whether the ongoing public discussion has any truth to AI and its impact at all.
