Come and listen to a cross-disciplinary roundtable on the ways in which we are using computation technologies to explore and cure the brain. Together, we will explore how far we have come in creating artificial minds and where in everyday life digital brain research and artificial intelligence affect us.

Leading scholars will help us navigate the promises and pitfalls of a phenomenon with no easy answers.

The roundtable will feature: 

  • Gaute Einevoll, who is Professor in Brain Physics and Mathematic Neurosciences and member of the Centre for Digital Life Norway.
  • Kristin Bergtora Sandvik, Professor in Legal Sociology and member of the Ethics Advisory Board of the Human Brain Project and
  • Gregory M. Reichberg, Professor of Philosophy, Religion and Political Science at the Peace Research Institute Oslo and leader of the project Warring with Machines: Military Applications of Artificial Intelligence and the Relevance of Virtue Ethics.

They will discuss with Mareile Kaufmann, a prize-winning voice in digital criminology, the different scientific and societal dimensions of the digital brain.
