In this episode, we will discuss A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and uncover the current developments and trends related to this encroaching phenomenon. Are we facing a future where we will all succumb to ChatGPT and our critical thinking will be replaced by sporadically clever algorithms, thus leading to an inevitable downfall for academia? Should we be worried about the increased introduction of A.I. into our everyday lives, where human accountability is being replaced by unaccountable software and bots? And most importantly: How is the EU positioning itself towards A.I. and how does it fare against global tech giants such as China and the USA? All of these issues will be discussed in today’s episode.
We are joined by Stefan Schmager, PhD Research Fellow in Information Systems at the University of Agder, and by Frans af Malmborg, PhD Research Fellow in Political Science and Management at the University of Agder.
