What is the future of (and with) Artificial Intelligence and where is the technology headed? What major societal challenges will arise as artificial intelligence gains an ever-increasing influence in our society? Machines can perform many tasks that humans cannot, are limited to specialized tasks. We are still far from developing general intelligence. What will be the true gain of AI in the years to come, and where will the technology find its limitations? This conference will address the development of AI both in methods and in applications.
