AI and the Future of Societies


12 October 2022



Herrenhausen Palace, Hanover, Germany

The dynamic developments in research and application fields of artificial intelligence (AI) are about to fundamentally change societies. AI is increasingly permeating all areas of life. This concerns global issues, such as sustainable system transformation or use of self-learning algorithms in work environments and public administration, as well as areas of private life, such as care for the elderly or individual learning. Simultaneous to the manifold opportunities associated with the use of AI, this development poses enormous challenges and risks. Questions arise for all societies as to what effects can be expected in the further course of the digital revolution.

In the context of this Herrenhausen Conference, central aspects and application areas of artificial intelligence will be discussed from an interdisciplinary perspective. What effects can be expected for political and economic systems? What are the consequences, for instance, for the future of mobility, labor relations and, not least, social inequality at different levels? The challenge of the future for all societies is: How can people use AI applications for their benefit and how can all parts of societies participate in the benefits of AI?
