Welcome to a fantastic evening about our future with artificial intelligence. How do we ensure that AI research benefits humanity and does not cause disasters? And how will our lives look if we live side by side with artificial intelligence?
The Minister for Higher Education and Research, Helene Hellemark Knutsson will give the inaugural speech.
Max Tegmark, Professor of Physics at MIT and initiator of the Future of Life Institute will give a lecture as a hologram, live from MIT. According to him, we face the biggest change in human history. Will there be a superintelligence and in that case will it serve us people or take over? Even though we have not answered this question today, we know that it is something that must be taken seriously by both the public and the decision makers.
In a panel interview with Jasmine Idun Isdrake (artist, cyborg), Fredrik Heintz (AI researcher, LiU), Dorna Behadadi (PhD student in philosophy, GU) and Rebecka Cedering Ångström (Ericsson Networked Society Lab) we will discuss how it will look when AI is a part of the future's infrastructure and our everyday life from both technical and philosophical perspectives.
The night will also contain musical entertainment performed by the robot orchestra Trubots and Göteborgs Indiekör. Gustav Källstrand, Nobel Center and Johanna Koljonen will moderate the evening.
This event is arranged with support from The Sten A Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture and in co-operation with Nobel Center and Volante.
FYI: You will need a ticket for the inauguration talk. You can get your free ticket at www.vetenskapsfestivalen.se from 12.00, 3 April.
