Artificial Intelligence has emerged as a key profit tool in the hands of large corporations. But how does it affect people and work? In a world that is yearning for constant evolution, ideally at rates that exceed the speed of light itself, who takes the first place in our priorities: profit or environmental protection?

 

Philosophical quests of this type will be analyzed by the renowned British writer and artist James Bridle, on Saturday December 7th on the TEDxPatras 2019 stage.
