AI, Human Values and Meaningful Human Control

In our everyday life, we are often exposed to outputs of AI-powered machines that impact our living environment, our way to see the world, and our life in general. Sometimes, machines are designed to allow just a predetermined range of possible reactions, limiting the users’ decisions and their liberty to explore other ways to react to their output. Even in those cases in which machines are not designed with the intent of impacting human choices or values, their outcome might bear unexpected consequences for human values’ formation and consolidation. 

The conference aims at addressing ethical issues of the impact of machines on human choices and value formation. Another important line of questioning will concern human oversight and control of autonomous systems. More specifically, how can humans retain meaningful human control (MHC) over these machines?
