Artificial Intelligence (AI) is usually about making computers and robots able to do things that so far only humans have done, e.g. play chess, drive a car, have a conversation or understand what others think. There is no doubt that artificial intelligence will fundamentally influence our future society and the job market. At the same time, there is, however, areas of AI where the machines are still lacking significantly behind us humans, for instance in social and linguistic intelligence. In this event, panellists will first give a general introduction to AI, relate machine intelligence to human intelligence, and then talk more specifically about the challenges in creating artificial social intelligence.

The event is a part of event series “Nordic Talks” by Nordic Council of Ministers Office in Lithuania. Nordic Talks is an open source event platform, which brings authors, scientists, innovators, and speakers of all stripes to audiences in Lithuania to share their stories that are important for Nordic-Baltic cooperation.
The Nordic and Baltic countries are among the most digitalized and innovative in the world, but in order to realize the full potential of this, the region must be further integrated and innovation promoted. Nordic and Baltic digitalization efforts are based on a ministerial declaration made at the Digital North conference in Oslo on 25 April 2017.
