NOVE’s Bubbling Up takes on artificial intelligence
On March 22, NOVE’s Bubbling Up held its third event at NOVE’s offices in the Hôtel Tassel. After a first event on fake news and a second one on trade, this third edition was dedicated to the challenges of artificial intelligence (AI).
This edition featured Andrés Álvarez Fernandez from the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies of the European Commission, who gave participants an update on the Group’s recently published report in Artifical Intelligence Review, while providing insight into the ethical issues surrounding AI, robotics and autonomous systems.
Various AI-themed activites included a photo booth, an AI chatbot demonstrating interactive conversations, guessing games involving human and machine generated art and poetry, and the now classic Bubbling Up activity: “fact or fake” cards to test our guests’ knowledge on the subject.
The Bubbling Up team would like to thank our speaker Andrés Álvarez Fernandez and all attendees for participating in this third successful event, and look forward to seeing you again at the next edition which will take place before the summer 2018.
All pictures taken during the evening by the team or by attendees with the Photobooth will be available on our Facebook group.
Organised by NOVE, Bubbling Up is a regular gathering of young professionals in public policy to exchange ideas on topical issues of the day. Bubbling Up’s events are based on the idea that it is not in the conference hall that our minds are made up, but at the bar or the buffet table – in conversation with our peers.
