AGGIORNAMENTO PERMANENTE

Algorithmic World: understanding and living in the world of machines

NH Santo Stefano Via Porta Palatina, 19 - 10122 TORINO

The rise of robotic factories, autonomous cars, automated customer services and increasingly independent analysis systems has brought the issue of artificial intelligence and new technologies to the centre of public debate.

One wonders, in particular, what are (and will be) the economic, social and cultural consequences of this increasingly rapid technological progress.

Analyzing the development trajectories of artificial intelligence, Anthony Elliott, sociologist and author of the book "Making Sense of AI" and "The Culture of AI", will share with the participants his reflections on how automated machines affect (and will influence) increasingly every area of public, professional and private life. Issues such as automation of the workforce, autonomous (and lethal) weapons, "racist" AI and the "tech divide" are increasingly recurring and divisive aspects.

However, only with a lucid and conscious reflection, we will be able to find a "sense" in the disruption brought by artificial intelligence, finding the way to live in the new world of algorithms. In this meeting, participants will have the opportunity to deepen in particular some ideas, including:

  • AI paradoxes in daily life
  • the impact of AI on work and corporate culture
  • the role of AI and the risks to society in the future.
