Exploring German ethics at the Aspen Institute Germany’s artificial intelligence conference

Can artificial intelligence work to preserve human dignity in Europe? We talked to Tyson Barker, program director of the Aspen Institute, to get his take ahead of the institute's AI conference this week.



This Thursday and Friday, the Aspen Institute Germany will host its second conference on artificial intelligence, a symposium aimed at probing the ethics and politics of behind AI technology.

This year’s iteration, titled “Humanity Defined: Politics and Ethics in the AI Age,” explores the moral frameworks surrounding the development of AI policy in Germany and Europe at large. We spoke to Tyson Barker, program director at the Aspen Institute, to talk about conference themes and what people mean when they say “AI.”
