Debating Europe: Does digitalisation threaten democracy?

Upcoming > Debating Europe: Does digitalisation threaten democracy?

Whether on smartphones, in the car or at work: man and machine are in a very close relationship – and often the machine is controlled by artificial intelligence. Our lives can be simplified and improved. Artificial intelligence can also influence opinions, manipulate elections and direct political decisions. Cybersecurity is becoming an ever-growing topic. How does artificial intelligence affect the coexistence? What are the pitfalls and which new opportunities are opening up? Which challenges arise for politics and citizens?

Discussion with Martina Mara (Key Researcher / RoboPsychology, Ars Electronica Futurelab Linz), Thomas Ramge (Technology Correspondent of the business magazine brand eins), Mario Kunasek (Austrian federal minister for national defense) and others.
Moderation: Eric Frey (Der Standard)
