Humans have made the rapid advances in artificial intelligence, big data technologies and robots possible. As digitalization is the result of human invention and implementation, there are also growing concerns that humans could ultimately be inferior to their own digital creatures and become superfluous: “However, a closer look shows that we do not have to look at digital progress with fatalism. With digital maturity, it is possible to shape a digital future. Ultimately, the aim must be to use the digital possibilities to enrich and improve analog life. Digitalization is a means to an end, but not an end in itself. The end remains a good and sustainable life for people,” says Prof. Grunwald.

The event is presented by Catholic Adult Education in the city and district of Hof in cooperation with the Faculty of Computer Science at Hof University of Applied Sciences. Admission is free.
