The Future of AI & the Internet

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkProfessional


In this panel discussion, four dynamic voices from different corners – artist and activist Paolo Cirio, mathematician and researcher Nanda Piersma, futurist storyteller Karen Palmer, and technology philosopher Hans de Zwart – come together to explore the complex landscape of media attention surrounding artificial intelligence. With a keen eye for distinguishing the different typologies of AI narratives, the panel delves into what we can reasonably expect from these technologies, while also scrutinizing the hyperbole and misconceptions that often cloud public perception.

By unpacking the nuanced roles AI plays in society, the discussion navigates through areas of possibilities and limitations: from speculative fiction to pragmatic applications in daily life, the panelists highlight the multifaceted dimensions of AI's impact on humanity and the role art can play in this. Through their diverse perspectives, they explore not only what AI can achieve but also the ethical and societal implications that arise from it.
