Artificial intelligence and human identity
The trend is crystal clear: we have entered an era in which computersystems have become self-learning. And systems of this kind are acquiring more and more skills that we have so far regarded as purely human. Intelligent systems that can hear, see, read and speak. But they can also recognise people's emotions; ever better and more refined. These developments have led to doubt about who we are and how we should relate to new technology. What skills are we willing to lose and outsource to new technology? How do we guard our human identity in an ever faster changing digital world?
