beyond initiative

Artificial intelligence (AI) will substantially change our mobility, our working world, and our lives. The aim of the beyond initiative is that AI will be applied for the benefit of society. The focus is on ethical, legal, and social aspects of autonomous driving and the future of work in the age of AI. As a first step, the beyond initiative has established an interdisciplinary network of international AI experts. Philosophers and psychologists meet software engineers, start-up entrepreneurs, and legal experts – because beyond is convinced that, in order to shape the AI transformation, business, politics, and society must work together.

    Audi CEO Stadler speaks at UN congress in Geneva about artificial intelligence

    Audi CEO Prof. Rupert Stadler has spoken at a congress of the United Nations about the use of artificial intelligence for the benefit of humankind.

He warned, however, against excessive expectations: “In situations where an accident is unavoidable, we expect a decision from the autonomous car. But a dilemma situation cannot be solved either by a human or by a machine.” Therefore, alongside legal issues, ethical questions about the use of the new technology also needed to be discussed, he added. With the beyond initiative, Stadler is now calling for such a discourse.
