Artificial Intelligence for a Better Future

An ecosystem perspective on the ethics of AI and emerging digital technologies

Book launch, 28.04.2021, 15.00 BST, online

How can the economic and social benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) be strengthened while its ethical and human rights risks are addressed? This is a question that drives the current policy debate, that exercises researchers and companies and that interests citizens and the media. It is the question that the upcoming book by Bernd Carsten Stahl provides a novel answer to. Drawing on the work of the EU project SHERPA, Stahl’s book proposes that using the theoretical lens of innovation ecosystems, we can make sense of empirical observations of the role of AI in organisations and society. This perspective furthermore allows for drawing practical and policy conclusions that can guide action to ensure that AI contributes to human flourishing.


The publication of the book that develops this exciting and novel approach in more detail is the occasion for this launch event. The event will bring together individuals representing different audiences for the book who will be invited to ask critical questions of the author. This panel discussion will be followed by a questions and answer session open to members of the audience


The book is published using an open access model. This means that members of the audience who find the argument interesting and would like to engage with it in more detail will be able to download it for free.
