"FUTURAS IN RES" conference: What's the IQ of AI?

Event date
November 21-22, 2019
Short description

The second "FUTURAS IN RES" conference will be held on November 21 and 22, 2019 and focus on the topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI).


"FUTURAS IN RES" is derived from the expression "medias in res" and means coming straight to the point about the opportunities and challenges of our future.

Understanding the complex effects of new technologies and disruptive innovations is essential for the success of entire societies and economies. Many aspects of life, technology, experience and work will continue to converge and transform. Structural changes through technological developments must therefore be recognized, understood and communicated at an early stage – in order to actively shape long-term impacts on economic, societal, political and cultural dimensions. 

With the "FUTURAS IN RES" conference, since 2018 the Fraunhofer Think Tank provides exactly the right forum for this: ideas meet solutions, visionaries meet practitioners, supporters meet admonishers, thinkers and developers come up with new questions. "FUTURAS IN RES" combines scientific excellence with internationality, future-orientation and a profound focus on sustainable value creation with benefits for industry and society.

The objective is to:

  • discuss the latest developments and the future potential of AI;
  • explore the five different dimensions of AI and to which extent AI possesses abilities for communication, perception, reasoning, consciousness-building and empathy;
  • share ideas, projects, products insights, foresights and concerns (including technological, social, legal and ethical issues).
