Seminar Description:

«Tech innovations - for example internet and AI based ones - have been the focus of startups, large businesses, investors, and research for a couple of decades, with impressive results. With hindsight, it may come as a surprise that only recently – perhaps the past 5-10 years – we started to also closely consider the potential risks these technologies can create. Regulators are also developing several new requirements for online platforms and for using AI in practice. Technological progress may not only prove risky but also risks slowing down if we do not manage both tech opportunities and risks at the same time. The recent letter of Musk and others to “pause AI progress” testifies to this. How can we balance these? What does it mean for business, society, and potentially even (geo)politics? How can you participate in this unfolding global game as managers or entrepreneurs and create value for yourself, your organizations, your country, and the world?»
