Lecture series

Robots

Robots, digitization, artificial intelligence: Technical developments set a new stage for human-machine interaction and present societies with unknown challenges. While new inventions already permeate production, professions and our everyday lives, technology supporters and sceptics alike are discussing the changes on all levels of society. How will coming generations of robots interact with humans? What will future operation rooms look like? Will robots replace us at work?

The interdisciplinary lecture series offers an opportunity to engage critical research positions and arguments. Established scholars will cover the field from technical innovations and challenges to legal, sociological and political questions, including the historical origins of machine learning.
