AI Mellontology (futurology) Symposium 2022

Artificial Intelligence (AI) poses serious R&D and societal challenges to address in the near future. Here are two notable examples:
  • Knowledge is the basis of our society, yet it is not formally quantified. How can we quantify knowledge, knowledge aggregation and transfer (education)?
  • How can we build trustworthy and humanistic AI, while still advancing economic growth and competitiveness?


Horizon2020 AI flagship R&D projects: AI4Media and ELISE, together with the International AI Doctoral Academy (AIDA) joined forces in sponsoring the AI Methodology e-Symposium 2021, where participants will be able to debate hot AI issues of any form on any scientific, societal, industrial/economic AI aspect.

Discussion sessions will be informal and hopefully lively and hot aiming to debate contrasting views (thesis-antithesis) on each issue.

Session panelists will make their short statements before and/or during the panel to be discussed by the audience. 

There will be 3 AI science/technology sessions in the morning and 3 AI society/industry/economy sessions in the afternoon.

You are welcome to a) see other views and voice your own views on any panel topic, by using the ‘Voice your views’ area and b) actively participate in each panel discussion.

The more innovative, futuristic, and even provocative your views are, the better. The discussion will be conducted though in a scientific way and in good faith.

The entire discussion and contributions will be compiled later on in a public ‘AI research white paper’ that will be used to guide R&D anywhere in the world, notably in the framework of AIDA and ICT48 R&D projects.

The 2022 AI Mellontology Symposium will be a hybrid event. It will take place in the Meteoroscopy Auditorium, AUTH Campus, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Remote participation will be done by zoom.
