무인자동차부터 고도화의 개인화된 서비스, 맞춤형 정치 캠페인까지 기계는 우리가 세계를 경험하고 상호작용하는 방식을 바꾸고 있습니다. 인공지능을 인간의 역량을 착취하는 것이 아니라, 증진시키는 방식으로 활용할 수 있는 미래를 어떻게 보장할 수 있을까요?
본 세션은 인공지능이 발달할 앞으로 10년의 미래의 모습이 그려보고, 인간의 관계에 어떤 영향을 미칠지 예측하기 위한 워크숍으로, 공동 창작과 미래 매핑의 방식을 통해 인공지능의 문화 및 윤리적 경계를 탐색하고, 더 나은 방식으로 인간이 표현하고, 공유하고, 서로 소통하기 위해 어떻게 인공지능을 활용할 수 있을지 살펴봅니다.

From self-driving cars to hyper-personalised services and targeted political campaigns, machines are transforming the way we experience and interact with the world. How can we ensure a future where machine intelligence is used to augment human capabilities rather than exploit them?


What is it?
This workshop is designed to envision what our next 10 years with AI could look like and its impact on human relationships. Through co-creation and Future Mapping, we will explore the cultural and ethical boundaries of AI and how it might be used to enhance the way we better express, share and communicate with each other.

Who is it for?
Anybody interested in the possibilities of AI! Whether you’re a tech-geek or non-expert in the field, this workshop is designed to be open and inclusive for all types of people, no matter their backgrounds or skills.

How do we do it?
1. Learn about examples of AI in everyday life
2. Identify a challenge/issue that’s keeping you awake at night
3. Speculate how that issue could evolve in 10years time
4. Co-create AI powered product/service that could address or solve your issue
5. Share your ideas with the rest of the group
6. Network (with your fellow human participants!)
