Demystifying AI

GSIS Utopia(s) Conversations on Meaningful Technologies

GSIS is organising a series of conversations in various formats that tie in with the themes of our Utopia(s) Reloaded Talks in October 2023. Our Utopia(s) Conversations will revolve around a Convivial Society for All, a Sustainable Planet and Meaningful Technologies.

On Friday, 10 May 2024, our Utopia(s) Conversations are devoted to Meaningful Technologies. During this session, we will dive into the complexities and capabilities of AI models. We’ll explore how they’re built, trained, and deployed. We’ll demystify the algorithms that enable machines to interpret, predict, and interact. And finally, we’ll discuss the ethical implications and the future of AI in our society:
