Partnering with AI for a human-centric future

Feature image for event

Technology profoundly changes what people do and how they connect, some aspects of which are critical to societal and individual wellbeing. Direct human connection has a unique impact on our thought and decision-making processes, and strongly influences our relationships, culture and society.

Technologisation offers us new horizons in every aspect of society, and has both amazing benefits and profound drawbacks – often at the same time – depending on the situation and application. Big data has the capacity to extend our horizons or limit the scope of our thinking; social media both connects and disconnects us; the future of work is offering both new opportunities for synergy between humans and technology, and mass unemployment with little agreement on worth and productivity; and family bots can connect a parent and child on opposite sides of the world, but distance them from each other within the home.

So how do we build a human-centric future which maintains human connection and understands the limitations of technology whilst leveraging fantastic new advancements and building high-quality human-synthetic partnerships? It is up to us.
