Nobel Week Dialogue Gothenburg: "Can Artificial Intelligence save mankind?"

"Can Artificial Intelligence solve mankind’s hugest problems?", was one of the questions discussed in the Swedish city of Gothenburg at a highbrow conference titled Nobel Week Dialogue. It brought together several Nobel Prize winners at Svenska Mässan and Gothia Towers to focus on "The Future of Intelligence", mostly at panel discussions. The conference has been regularly staged for the past four years on the day preceding the Nobel Prize award ceremonies. With its university and science park, Gothenburg as expo and conference destination is a particular hotspot for innovations. tw video coverage from Gothenburg (edited by Frank Wewoda/tw).
