Theme: Artificial Intelligence and the Future

Details: The purpose of this endeavour is to encourage young scholars ponder over conceptual, analytical, philosophical and other critical questions that rapidly advancing artificial intelligence is ushering into the world of human existence. We support new and original thinking, and nonconformist and intellectually radical ideas. An inter-disciplinary and systemic approach to study the future is the most appropriate, according to our perception. Economic, legal, social, behavioural, political dimensions, among others, are our primary focus. However, there is no limitation when it comes to defining the scope of impact of AI on humans, society, and everything related thereto.

Open to: Students of any nationality enrolled in any bachelor, master and PhD programmes in public and private universities of Georgia.

Deadline: Entries must be received by September 20, 2019 (Friday) (23:59 your local time).
