“The age of AI? Exploring ethical and social concerns from a digital anthropology perspective.” UCLouvain, Louvain-la-Neuve (10/05/2024)

Dr. Maxime Derian a donné un cours à l’UCL, le 10 mai 2024 sur les implications sociales et techniques de l’IA lors du séminaire du Pr. David Bol.

“The age of AI? Exploring ethical and social concerns from a digital anthropology perspective.”

What is AI and what is its history? Are we living in the age of AI, as Bill Gates describes it? According to Dr. Derian, artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful asset and lever that is profoundly transforming our society. This conference examines its ethical and social implications through the prism of digital anthropology, addressing several key themes.

An interdisciplinary approach is needed to address the ethical issues associated with AI, with a focus on stakeholder participation and human-centered design. The challenges are to strike a balance between technological progress and ethical values.

According to the author, society is evolving towards a “hive society”, structured as a symbiotic swarm between humans, IoT and AI, changing our social and professional interactions. This transformation raises important questions of identity.

AI is also transforming work, replacing some jobs and changing others through automation.

Strong ethical oversight and regulation are needed to manage the risks associated with AI. The environmental aspect is also addressed, highlighting the need for sustainable and energy-efficient AI systems.

For Dr. Derian the limits of AI are not so much technical as cognitive and ecological. A collective reflection to ensure responsible use of AI while fostering innovation.
