AI, Rights and Democracy
Risks and powers of artificial intelligence
Session 1 : WTF, artificial intelligence? Risks and powers
Artificial intelligence (AI) is very present in our daily lives: social networks, recommended content, personalized advertising or navigation systems are some of its applications. But not only. Technology based on artificial intelligence also operates and determines applications for mortgages or social aid.
While artificial intelligence improves efficiency and productivity in complex and repetitive tasks, or can even improve the accuracy and speed of medical diagnoses, it also raises a lot of questions and challenges. What do we know about this technology? Why do some organizations prefer to refer to it as "automated decision systems"? What is its historical background? What does it imply to reduce complex realities to systems of categories and data banks, in order to apply automated decision systems? What are the main potentialities, and the main biases, of artificial intelligence?
In the first session of the Artificial Intelligence, Rights and Democracy Cycle we have Carlos Castillo (UPF) and Maria Vanrell (UAB) to address these issues and to have some basic notions about the operation, applications and ethical debates of this technology. The cycle continues with:
- Sessió 2 | IA, polítiques públiques i discriminacions
- Sessió 3 | IA, comunicació i periodisme
- Sessió 4 | IA, plataformes i treball
📌 Organized by: Canòdrom - Ateneu d'Innovació Digital i Democràtica
