Workshop Content

Over the course of four sessions, participants learned when and why one should rely on human intelligence (including intuition) and when on the different tools that Artificial Intelligence provides. Tailored to the participants’ position as managers, the workshop further elaborated on how to integrate human and Artificial Intelligence to supercharge the decision processes in the participants’ respective organisation. Furthermore, participants learned to differentiate between calculable risk and incalculable uncertainty and how to best perform in each context. Lastly, the workshop expanded beyond organisational boarders and gave an outlook on how Artificial Intelligence will impact societies at large and how to stay smart in a smart world.

Nicole Formica-Schiller: AI expert and one of the few female entrepreneurs in this field in the German-speaking world

Where do algorithms decide better than humans, but where not? Will banking, human resources and judicial decisions be automated in the future? Can simple, transparent algorithms replace complex ones, and when can we make better predictions with less data than with Big Data? How robust is the widespread assumption that complex algorithms and AI make better decisions in many areas of life? Are we already sleepwalking into surveillance by the state and tech companies? Will a social credit system modeled on China be our future, promising justice and security? How can we maintain control in a digital world? Specific examples are used to discuss how humans can properly assess the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence – in short, how to acquire digital literacy.
