The Bertalanffy Center has again teamed up with major Viennese universities and the City of Vienna for a very special event on one of the most defining challenges for our time and the future of our civilization.
At the Bertalanffy Lecture and conference ‘Homo digitalis’ from 18 to 19 March 2020, BCSSS Vice President Felix Tretter and his group on Human Digitalization reflect critically not only on the trends and threats associated with digitalization, AI and machine learning, but the very nature of humanity and our societal perception of it. Join us as renowned scholars in central Europe discuss topics like “Artificial Intelligence – When do machines take over?” or projects such as the “Vienna Manifesto on Digital Humanism”. Register here for the conference.
Homo Digitalis is preceeded by an event of one of our BCSSS friends, the PrimeMovers. As part of the pre-program for ONE DAY: The Conference, the organization hosts an evening meetup on 4 March 2020 “The Dark Future of AI, Medicine and Media“, with special focus on gender inequality. The meetup will be held in English langauge. Please find more information below.
The Homo Digitalis lecture and conference will be held in German language. We invite our English speaking followers to read our project reports and to approach us if you’d like to join the conversation at the Human Digitalization Research Group. Please bear with us as the enclosed invitation is addressed to our German speaking readers only.
