Digital monopolists not only own “factories” where we produce data for them. They also possess a common virtual space which everybody needs to go through. Something has to be done about it, says economist Jan Zygmuntowski in conversation with Maciej Chojnowski.
New technologies are going to further polarize the labor market. We are going to have extremely well-paid, highly skilled people and “replaceable employees” working for peanuts. Professor Katarzyna Śledziewska and professor Renata Włoch in conversation with Maciej Chojnowski.
The question about the future of artificial intelligence should be looked at in a broader context: Where is this all going? Why do we need it? Do we do that only to make money or to improve the quality of life? Conversation with Jarosław Protasiewicz, PhD, director of the National Information Processing Institute.
According to the 2019 Global AI Talent Report, there is the same number of talents in Poland and in the Czech Republic. Only that the Czech Republic is several times smaller than our country, says professor Piotr Sankowski, Institute of Informatics, University of Warsaw, in conversation with Maciej Chojnowski.
The discussion on how universities should look like in the era of artificial intelligence is a red herring. Instead, we should concentrate on how to function as a society in the world where AI-based solutions will play an increasingly important role. Mateusz Gaczyński, Deputy Director of the Department of Innovation and Development, Ministry of Science and Higher Education, in conversation with Maciej Chojnowski.
The algorithm itself is neither ethical, nor unethical. It is the human who created it, who made more or less ethical decisions. So he’s the one responsible. Maciej Cho-jnowski talks with Przemysław Biecek, professor in Human-Centered Artificial Intel-ligence at Warsaw University of Technology.
Increasingly rapid development of IT and AI means a growing demand for employees who are constantly poached from universities. Although the problem of financial conditions in the case of doctoral studies may seem down-to-earth, it is far from being unimportant, says professor Krzysztof Krawiec, Ponznan University of Technology, in an interview conducted by Maciej Chojnowski.
Many people say we don’t understand consciousness. Let them speak for themselves. I believe we’re getting to know it better and better. We’re able to use our knowledge about the brain to build better artificial intelligence step-by-step. Maciej Chojnowski talks to Professor Włodzisław Duch.
Imagine today a new Marx or a new Aristotle or a new Kant being born. What would they be thinking about? I think they would be engaging in all the digital transformations, innovation and technologies. Prof. Luciano Floridi in conversation with Maciej Chojnowski.
