On March 25-26, 2020, the Aspen Institute Germany will host its third annual Berlin AI Conference, “Humanity Enabled: AI & the Great Economic Awakening.” This conference will examine the societal implications of the enormous economic potential and disruption associated with AI. By 2030, AI is estimated to contribute 15.7 trillion USD to the global economy. At the same time, 15 % of existing jobs—approximately 400 million positions—could be impacted by automation. As in past industrial and technological revolutions, there is risk that AI/ML will lead to increased global competition, greater inequalities, and a redefinition of the content or meaning of work. The third Aspen AI Conference will thus focus on the major challenges and conflicting goals of the economy, the welfare state and global competition in the AI age.
