Artificial Intelligence and Society 5.0 | The Peer Revue Improv Comedy
With the rise of ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence tools, society is changing rapidly. How are we to navigate a world of misinformation, data breaches and mass surveillance? With the help of our guest Professor Lisa Given of course! Lisa is an expert in global information science and ethics at RMIT. She’s Co-initator and lead of the Society 5.0 Ethics project. Society 5.0 is “a broad label for the near-future, inseparable interconnection between humans and technologies in the era of artificial intelligence and machine learning. It is characterised by ever-increasing data gathering, ubiquitous predictive analytics, AI-saturated systems, and immersive internet.” This special Peer Revue show is part of Social Sciences Week and is presented in conjunction with the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
