freie Plätze VORTRAG IT for an ageing society - Z42050

( ab Do., 24.2., 18.00 Uhr )

Technology can help older adults in different ways. In medical needs, communication with friends and family, payment, and even housework, IT can accompany them. A new study reveals that fear of making mistakes and broader concerns about their social responsibility are among the reasons why older people reject digital technologies. Barriers like understanding the internet as a dangerous place, social networking sites being places of socially unacceptable behaviour, and regarding the required skills to use computers as being too much, they found the assumptions associated with computers as one of the factors hindering seniors. In our presentation, we would like to talk about the necessity of IT for the ageing society and how they can adapt and make their lives more accessible, comfortable, and happening.

»Paradise or robocalypse: The curse and blessing of AI
«
A Japanese man married his virtual reality hologram Hatsune Miku in 2018 during a ceremony in Tokyo. This incident questions where the technology is and how artificial intelligence can change our social norms and values. Although this is an extreme case, we can not deny that we depend on AI these days. The challenge is our strategy for staying ahead in the past, and this wisdom race has always been learning from mistakes. We first invent fire, then many accidents we invent fire extinguishers, but some things as powerful as nuclear weapons or incredibly superhuman artificial intelligence, you don't want to learn from mistakes either. So in our presentation, we would talk about how AI is shaping the world and the consequence of what can happen if something goes wrong.
