Prof. Luciano Floridi (University of Oxford & Trustee of the Nexa Center for Internet & Society (DAUIN)) will discuss:

Artificial agents can outsmart us, outperform us, and replace us in an increasing number of tasks. Yet the problem is not a dystopian future, in which some Super-AI will dominate or lives, for this is science fiction. It is rather how we are going to re-interpret who we are, our roles in life, and our still exceptional nature in the universe.
