TEDxKULeuven: (Re)structure the (De)structured

6 May 2022

TED❌KULeuven is back in town!

The evening of  📅 MAY 6, 2022 TEDxKULeuven presents you: (Re)structure the (De)structured. With 8 speakers in its 3rd edition, TEDxKULeuven aims to scrutinise the developments and corresponding challenges currently happening in the world.

Technological and scientific breakthroughs, artificial intelligence, and the continuing globalisation is offering a lot of potential and progress, but similarly have left us with a lot of uncertainties and fears. Therefore, we should try to take up the building blocks that are being offered to us and puzzle them together into a structural worldview. This way, we will be able to reconstruct what has lost its framework, to restructure the destructured.

Past Events

AI Ethics Debate Part 2

In recent years there has been a rapid growth in the use of semi-autonomous systems and research into lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWS). This has led to a lot of debates in the highest circles at national and international level about the permissibility of the future use of LAWS. In this talk we will highlight some of the ethical aspects that are currently under discussion such as: What are LAWS? How should we understand autonomy? What makes LAWS problematic? Who should be held responsible if something goes wrong?
