How Can Artificial Intelligence Strengthen Human Relationships?



From self-driving cars to hyper-personalized services and targeted political campaigns, machines are transforming the way we experience and interact with the world. How can we ensure a future where machine intelligence is used to augment human capabilities rather than exploit them?



What is it?
This workshop is designed to envision what our next 10 years with AI could look like and its impact on human relationships. Through co-creation and Future Mapping, we will explore the cultural and ethical boundaries of AI and how it might be used to enhance the way we better express, share and communicate with each other.

Who is it for?
Anybody interested in the possibilities of AI! Whether you’re a tech-geek or non-expert in the field, this workshop is designed to be open and inclusive for all types of people, no matter their backgrounds or skills.

How do we do it?
1. Learn about examples of AI in everyday life
2. Identify a challenge/issue that’s keeping you awake at night
3. Speculate how that issue could evolve in 10years time
4. Co-create AI-powered product/service that could address or solve your issue
5. Share your ideas with the rest of the group
6. Network (with your fellow human participants!)
