Virginia Dignum will talk about the interim report of the UN Advisory Board on AI – called “Governing AI for Humanity”. It was released on Dec 21, 2023. The report can be seen as an important for a really world-wide governance. The central piece of the report is a proposal to strengthen international governance of AI by carrying out critical functions such as scanning for risks or supporting international collaboration. It also includes recommendations to enhance accountability and ensure an equitable voice for all countries.

Digital Humanism deals with the complex relationship between man and machine. It acknowledges the potential of Informatics and IT. At the same time, it points to related apparent threats such as privacy violations, ethical concerns with AI, automation, and loss of jobs, and the ongoing monopolization on the Web.
For this reason, a new initiative — DIGHUM lectures — started with regular online events to discuss the different aspects of Digital Humanism.
We will have one or more speakers on a specific topic followed by a discussion, or panel discussions, depending on topic and speakers. The exact dates will be announced at least two weeks before.
