What is the impact of a loss of privacy? What are the consequences for our individual autonomy, our social practices and our democratic societies? And how do digital technologies change us, and change or affect the possibilities for being human? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed by Prof. Beate Rössler, Research Chair in Philosophy and Ethics at the UvA’s Faculty of Humanities.

The webinar series ‘Humane Conversations’ connects researchers from various disciplines to discuss AI research topics, with a particular focus on human-centred AI. The first speaker was Prof. Max Welling, from the UvA Faculty of Science, who addressed the topic What’s happening in AI research and what does it mean for Humane AI?
The University of Amsterdam has designated Human(e) AI as one of its research priority areas. The aim is to bring synergy to ongoing work on AI and stimulate new research at the UvA on the societal consequences of the rapid development of artificial intelligence and automated decision-making.
