We cordially invite you to our special event on Thursday, January 23, 2020
In this new edition of the Conditio Humana Soirée, we will explore what the new decade may hold in stock: where will AI be headed in the years to come? What repercussions may this development have on democracy and its institutions? What solutions we may find will improve society?
