Humanity at the Crossroads?
Contemplative Practice & AI / Modern Technologies
In light of the exponential growth of artificial intelligence (AI) and the digitalization of our lives and cultures, a series of questions arise for man and the planet
There is a need for a deeper understanding of three main topics that will guide our common future:
- The essence, needs and possibilities of the human being
- The essence and possibilities of technology
- The relationship between man and technology
The conference will focus on our possibilities and responsibilities as human beings for the course of the ongoing evolution. A special area of interest will be the concern for future generations. Which human qualities do children and adolescents need to thrive in tomorrows´ sophisticated technological world?
The conference aims to clarify the premises for a humane and sustainable development in light of the ongoing technological revolution within bio-, info-, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence (AI).
Target groups: People in education, technology, business, culture and public policy.
The format of the conference will be plenary talks, workshops/parallel sessions, panel discussions and dialogue with the audience. The event will be filmed and made available online.
