The Artificial Intelligence Class 2021 

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 15:00 to Tuesday, November 2, 2021 - 19:00

Artificial intelligence has become a formidable driving force in reshaping many aspects of business and our personal space: from altering working procedures to the creation of your own weekly playlist. So, what will happen if AI takes over our jobs and becomes better at making decisions than human beings? Should we just entrust the algorithms with everything in our daily lives? 

Join the discussion about the challenges and opportunities that AI poses. In dealing with this societal challenge, we wish to engage a generation-overarching group who is interested in a joint exploration of the darker and brighter sides of AI. 
The course will consist of three sessions guided by experts in the field. You will have the opportunity to meet peers and to broaden your understanding of the complexities of technology in contemporary society. 

There is a limited number of places, so please be sure to sign up as soon as possible, the deadline is October 1st. Participation is free.
There will be three sessions in total, the first one taking place on October 6th, from 15-19h with an optional dinner afterwards.
Note that there are two possibilities for sign-up:

1. Be a participant in the core cohort and commit to attending all three sessions and actively engage in taking insights along the courses throughout all sessions. Minor preparations for the classes in the form of readings will be expected.
Sign up for all three sessions

2. Be a participant who may attend in one or two sessions.
Sign up for one or two sessions

This project is a pilot on CBS’ emerging platform for lifelong learning, CBS Kontinuum. In collaboration with Station, it explores how to create a transformative, intergenerational learning space, in which urgent societal questions and challenges are discussed.

Please note that the events will be held in English.
