How will the interaction between humans and machines evolve at the advent of an abundance of AI capabilities?

We are living in an age in which chatbots and robots have become increasingly sophisticated and are able to simulate human levels of intelligence, recognize human emotions, and even act like humans. The interface between humans and machines is at the very heart of the digital transformation and is a key driver for building use cases for artificial intelligence. The key question we will address at this conference is:

How will the interaction between humans and machines evolve at the advent of an abundance of AI capabilities?

Our multi-disciplinary conference program will contribute to this discourse by looking at many different perspectives. We will look at the GPT-3 transformer, a technology for building chatbots with minimal pretraining, examine the question of whether humans and machines might develop communication styles similar to those between physicians and their patients, and discuss whether the rise of sex robots could jeopardize the future of human beings.

At this conference, speakers will address issues that will be ever-present in business and society for years to come. The implications of human-machine interaction will prepare us better for the challenges ahead.
