Can ethics be digitised?

Digitisation and Artificial Intelligence are not empty spaces. Although new technologies offer opportunities to make life easier they can also have an immediate impact on people, their work, the common good, the economy, politics and the environment - intangible, therefore highly complex.In a heterogeneous world, programming an all-embracing ethic remains a myth. Which decisions do we allow the algorithms and smart systems to make? Blind faith is out of the question especially if Artificial Intelligence is supposed to be a tool for humans and not a threat or barrier. The increased freedom of communication places high demands on the competences of sovereign and autonomous citizens. How do we use these opportunities without losing sight of people in favor of technology? The following personalities examine these questions:
Tim Berners-Lee
The inventor of the world wide web. His name will forever be in history as the man who changed the future of the way we work, play and communicate. In his speeches he discusses the threats and opportunities for business in the new era of future media. Sir Tim offers great insights into how social media and new technologies can be used to optimise the way we do business and live our lives in the future.
Dr. Rodney Brooks
builds robots based on biological principles of movement and reasoning. The goal: a robot who can figure things out. He is the Founder and CTO of Rethink Robotics, whose mission is to apply advanced robotic intelligence to manufacturing and physical labour.

Lobo deals with the impact of the internet and new technologies on society, economy, politics and culture, with the digital world from social media to digital work processes of companies.
Prof. Dr. Jürgen Schmidhuber
is a computer scientist and artist known for his work on machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), artificial neural networks, digital physics, and low-complexity art. His contributions also include generalizations of Kolmogorov complexity and the Speed Prior. Since 1995 he has been co-director of the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA in Lugano, since 2009 also professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Lugano.
Daniel Domscheit-Berg
he helped build the WikiLeaks platform from late 2007 to September 2010, and acted as its spokesperson under the pseudonym Daniel Schmitt.
