Curious 2024 - Future Insight Conference

Workshop on AI and Democracy: Navigating Transformative Change, Innovation, and Regulation​

with Prof. Dr. Christoph Burchard, LL.M (NYU), Prof.'in Dr. Jeanette Hofmann, and Prof. Dr. Klaus Mainzer

Sustainable and responsible Artificial Intelligence (AI) can make Europe strong in global competition, both economically and politically. Likewise, AI is reshaping democracy by transforming social institutions, political participation and policy-making. It is therefore key to navigate responsibly between transformative change, innovation, and regulation. This panel will explore how AI can enhance democracy, address risks of unpredictability and opacity, and the importance of justifiable oversight to ensure AI developments contribute positively to sustainable democratic governance.


Our Speakers:


Prof. Dr. Christoph Burchard, LL.M (NYU)


Prof.'in Dr. Jeanette Hofmann


Prof. Dr. Klaus Mainzer
