Japanisch-Deutsche Konferenz: Künstliche Intelligenz und der Mensch - Interkulturelle Perspektiven auf Wissenschaft und Fiktion

Zeitraum: 17.06.2021 - 18.06.2021 Ort: Berlin

Current debates on artificial intelligence often conflate the realities of AI technologies with the fictional renditions of what they might one day become. They are said to be able to learn, make autonomous decisions or process information much faster than humans, which raises hopes and fears alike. What if these useful technologies will one day develop their own intentions that run contrary to those of humans?

Imaginations about the human and technologies are far from universal, they are culturally specific. This is why a cross-cultural comparison is crucial for better understanding the relationship between AI and the human and how they are mutually constructed by uncovering those aspects that are regarded as natural, normal or given. Focusing on concepts, representations and narratives from different cultures, the conference aims to address two axes of comparison that help us make sense of the diverse realities of artificial intelligence and the ideas of what is human: Science and fiction, East Asia and the West. 

The conference "Artificial Intelligence and the Human – Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Science and Fiction" will take place on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 June 2021 in Berlin.
