Understanding Life in AI Era – Booklet Validation Workshop

May 16, 2022

The accelerated developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are placing a long-lasting impact on the social lifestyle and well-being of our society. The main goal of this workshop is to launch the debate about Life in AI Era: challenges, benefits and risks, and to facilitate a networking space for stakeholders’ experience exchange and cooperation on AI issues.

This Multiplier Event is promoted by “HEDY – Life in the AI”, a 2-year Erasmus+ project that started in November 2021, aiming at offering a comprehensive and shared view of how AI is affecting our lives and reshaping our socioeconomic, cultural, and human environments by promoting critical reflection, self-based learning and discussion on these issues. HEDY is mainly, but not exclusively, targeting higher education audiences.

Four specific objectives will be produced to reach this goal, the first of which is the Booklet. The Booklet is an essay defining the HEDY position on life in the AI era and the rationale for that position. In this workshop, we present the results of our two-fold approach to building our rationale about the challenges, opportunities and expected impact of AI on four topics: business, governance, skill & competencies, and people & lifestyle.

The workshop was held in Catalan/Spanish.
