The Corona crisis prevents the physical meetings and discussions that have so far been a central part of AI Lund's outreach activities. But in order to continue dialogue and joint learning, we now try a series of online lunch seminars. Together we watch one or more presentations from previous AI Lund events for 20-30 minutes. Then an expert, often. the original speaker, are there to answer questions for 10-15 minutes. You can also ask questions in the text chat during the video. The presentations can be in Swedish or English, and you can ask questions in both languages.

On June 10 we watch the presentation that senior lecturer Anamaria Dutceac Segesten gave during the Lund University annual future week 14 October 2019

Title: Can Artificial Intelligence replace politicians?

Speaker: Anamaria Dutceac Segesten, Senior lecturer at Centre for European Studies, Lund Unversity

Abstract: The question of how technology changes the labor market has been studied often in the context of manufacturing vs creative job. An interesting thought experiment is to discuss whether more advanced AI algorithms introduced in the public sector can make politicians superfluous. This presentation will discuss the question both theoretically and anchored in empirical examples.
