Workshop: Who determines what artificial intelligence should be able to do?
An overview of current AI regulations
What concerns do you have when you think of artificial intelligence (AI)? And what would an AI algorithm need to accomplish to make you feel good? Based on these questions, we provide an overview of current AI regulatory approaches, the ethical considerations behind them, and the relevant players. We explain in an easy-to-understand way how something as diverse as AI can be politically regulated and standardized, and show opportunities for citizens and companies to participate in this process.
Target group: The workshop is suitable for citizens without prior knowledge of AI as well as for people who would like to delve deeper into the current regulation of AI.
Duration: flexible, min. 45 minutes, max. 2.5 hours

(planned) The new form of science dialogue: public engagement
As a growing and new orientation of science communication, public engagement aims to improve the dialogue between science and society and to interactively involve the public in research.

Our public engagement managers provide insight into the Cyber Valley Public Engagement formats and their experiences.
