Time & Location
About the event
Artificial Intelligence (AI) today is largely designed to perform narrow, specific tasks, but as data input and computing power increase, the world faces an AI revolution.
At this turning point in history, very few people truly understand AI's full potential or can see clearly what is coming our way. iHUMAN goes inside the booming AI industry to explore the opportunities and challenges AI presents, investigate the dilemmas experts face as they drive this technology forward, and examine what impact AI is having and will have on the world and our humanity.
The film showcases the positive social impact AI can bring, including optimizing healthcare and driving forward progress on the UN 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and Sustainable Development Goals, asks if is possible to effectively regulate AI, and evaluates concerns about the possible misuse of AI, with a particular focus on how fast AI development is forging ahead of existing legal and ethical standards.
By giving voice to experts in the AI industry, iHUMAN sheds light on the important issues AI raises. As machines get smarter and what it means to be human is changing, the film asks: How does AI impact who we are as people? How can we make sure global tech companies develop AI that is safe and for the common good? What goals and values should we program into AI systems?
