InterCHANGES is a series of interactive events for, and by mission-driven people. It offers ongoing opportunities to share & co-create knowledge, while nurturing a safe space for long lasting relationships. Together with whom it must concern we address challenges and strive for a better future.

In what way are virtual worlds, ai & global platforms developed? How to shape our digital future?

AI is on the verge of disrupting business as usual in many industries. In particular tech evolution provides digital designers with abundant opportunities to create impactful products. However, tech is not innocent: it harbors discriminatory algorithms, data privacy risks, etc. What dilemmas emerged? Whose responsibility is its ethical development?

Lisanne Buik (artist-futurist & AI ethics consultant) wonders how we can address the ethics of tech with grace. Are we on the cusp of a new era that will bring a revaluation of the balance between the digital and analogue?
