Détails de l'événement.

AI4Belgium has the pleasure to invite Mieke De Ketelaere* for its next webinar. Mieke follows the developments in the fascinating world of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, from the front row. She looks for answers to the most common questions: what can AI do? What not yet? And to what extent is AI really intelligent and adds value to our way of life? Additionally, she focusses on the many opportunities offered by AI, but she also points out the risks.

In her book and during this webinar, Mieke De Ketelaere takes the participants beyond the hype, allowing everybody to participate informally in this important debate. Because in the end, one truth is clear: AI is already very important today, but it will be crucial for our future. Mieke invites the audience to become more critical about what decisions to make.

Do you want to know more about artificial intelligence, without it getting too technical? Are you curious about the potential impact of AI on your daily life? Do you want to participate in the debate on the impact of AI on our societies? Then register below for the book presentation ‘Human versus machine’ (mens versus machine).  

After the presentation of around 40 minutes, you will get the opportunity to take part in an interactive Q&A session with the author.
