We are citizens of a world dramatically shaped by technological progress.

According to Edward A. Lee, computer scientist at UC Berkeley and the author of "Plato and the Nerd", technologies are co-evolving with humans: Whereas we are developing and propagating technology, computational technology is creating artificial intelligences that will augment our capabilities. Therefore, the range and extent of what we can do seems limitless - or not?

In December 2017 the Faculty of Informatics at TU Wien organized a lecture and panel discussion with the Faculty’s International Advisory Board about the interchange of humans and computer science.

Where will we set the borders of the cyberworld? Which roles will engineers and scientists play? How will conflict and cooperation shape the land of humans and artificial intelligence? The complete discussion about the creative partnership of humans and technology can be found on our channel as well.

As an introduction to the discussion Edward A. Lee gave a short keynote, which you can watch here.
