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 to trust in 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.
