Conference Debate Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

On the 27th of February, the Veolia Institute and The Future Society have organised a conference debate on "Artificial Intelligence and Robotics", following the publication of a FACTS Reports Special Issue on the topic. 

The promise the AI revolution hold to deliver sustainable urban development is immense; so too are the risks.  Depending  on the velocity and magnitude of the development and diffusion of AI and robotics technologies, the AI revolution may raie incomes, enhance quality of life for all and generate previously unimagined jobs to replace those that get automated. Or it may lead to mass unemployment, privacy abuses, discrimination and loss of control over key collective decision-making processes. The participants have given their insight on such risks and opportunites and a few leads on how best to harness the potential of this technological revolution.

To discuss the issue, the Veolia Institute has invited the following experts:
  • Nicolas Miailhe, Co-Founder and President of The Future Society ;
  • Mathieu Saujot, Coordinator of the "Linking Digital and Ecological Transitions" initiative, IDDRI ;
  • Claire Falzone, Executive Director, Nova Veolia ;
  • Julien Hendrickx, Professor, Ecole Polytechnique de Louvain.
