The details of the lecture

The influence of artificial intelligence on human society is currently a number one topic amongst the leading world intellectuals. Apart from the issues of its practical use and the prediction of its future trends, a critical discourse has been opened on the subject of its ethical challenges, which are already worrying the intellectual elite, along with the challenges looming in the future.

Artificial intelligence will be examined using a 3K methodology in the lecture, for a precise evaluation of its essence and open manifestations, followed by a review of the possibility of restricting its use and the control of its future development, bearing in mind, first and foremost, its ethical perspective.
