The dizzying progress of technology has boosted social well-being and favoured economic development, but it is also infringing on rights that, until recently, we viewed as inviolable. A biased use of artificial intelligence, facial recognition and robotics can increase inequalities and invade citizen privacy. This concern has given rise to a critical current that can be defined as “technological humanism”. The question is, is there still time to correct the undesirable effects of technological development?
This panel will consist of Nerea Luis Mingueza, Doctor of Artificial Intelligence and holder of a Medal of the Order of Civil Merit; and Francesca Bria, President of the Fondo Nazionale Innovazione and Member of the Board of the New European Bauhaus. The debate will be moderated by Miquel Molina, Assistant Editor of La Vanguardia and writer.
Presented by María Sheila Cremaschi, MBE, Director of Hay Festival Segovia.
