Title: Social Science Perspectives on Artificial Intelligence
When: 8 December 2021, 12:15-14:00
- Eden Hörsal, Allhelgona kyrkogata 14, Lund, Sweden.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has so far predominantly been studied in the natural- and technical sciences with the aim of developing and improving it for everything from health care to education and warfare. But we have yet to come to terms with the broader question of how we can and should live with AI. For this reason, the roundtable ‘Social Science perspectives on Artificial intelligence’ explores the social, cultural and implications of AI from a number of social scientific vantage points, including sociology, ethics, political science and human geography. In doing so, the roundtable offers alternative ways of studying and interpreting AI that asks not only what AI can do for us but what we do with AI and what AI does to us.
