Daniel Dippold

Daniel Dippold

Territory President Europe bei Kairos Society

Computers already play games such as Super Mario Bros or chess better then humans do. But can they understand emotions and interact with humans? Or even become smarter than the human race? In his insightful talk, 22 year-old Daniel Dippold shows how a computer plays Super Mario and discovers the rules all by itself. He explains that society has not clearly defined what AI is yet and appeals urgently to the viewers by suggesting an open and broader discussion on the philosophical and ethical aspects of AI.

Renee Richardson Gosline

Senior Lecturer & Research Scientist at MIT

We can’t remember any numbers without our cell phones and have difficulty driving without Waze. We increasingly rely on technology to perform basic cognitive tasks, and this choice is becoming more automatic and less conscious. We assume technology improves our choices. But does it? A series of experiments will be used to examine the topic, leaving the viewer with the question: when do I assume greater rationality from technology, and how does that affect my expectations about my own behavior?
