[Translate to EN:]

With the arrival of digital media a new era of human society has begun. If society has so far been marked by language, text, and print, now for the first time machines are taking part in communication. Will society in the future be largely determined by networks and artificial intelligences? In his lecture, Dirk Baecker discusses how we can meet the challenge of artificial intelligence.
