3.1 Socio-humanitarian artificial intelligence (AI) technologies

   Artificial intelligence is increasingly affecting people´s initiatives. If earlier AI helped a person to perform routine operations, a few researchers are arguing that AI can copy emotions and thinking processes. The general (strong) AI is moving further and further into the areas previously inaccessible for understanding people´s capabilities: the collective unconscious, the transcendental state of mind. Such advanced technologies are useful for group strategic formation for self-organising social networks and for creating effective plans for government, non-government, regional, national, municipal, and other bodies. But all of this can lead to a sharp reduction in jobs, and as a consequence, social unrest. There is a high risk of societal development with limited attention to people´s emotions, lacking soul. This session aims to discuss such problems and propose disruptive solutions to improve AI development in the present and future.

Discussion points
  • sociology of technology and engineering: how does technology change social practices and the structure of society, what actors do society need?

  • trends in the development of engineering education: from the screw to the Creator of new technology;

  • cultural studies and anthropology of technology: is there a chance for civilization?;

  • philosophy of science and technology: Cybernetics and systems approach;

  • dynamics of engineering science: network way of organization and new approaches to work with data;

  • sixth technological structure: opportunities and prospects;

  • critical technologies and engineering education: interfaces.
