Everything everywhere at once – How artificial intelligence is changing our world and what we can gain from it (currently in German only)
Artificial intelligence is now available to everyone for the first time. With programs like ChatGPT, we are at a crucial threshold in our cultural evolution. Everything changes everywhere at once. Léa Steinacker and her co-author, Miriam Meckel, show the opportunities that step over this threshold offers. But how do we steer development in the right direction and where are risks or ethical dilemmas lurking? If we want to keep up in an increasingly complex world, then we also have to expand our human intelligence – artificial intelligence can even help us with this.
Léa holds degrees from Princeton University (A.B.), the Harvard Kennedy School of Government (MPP), and completed her PhD at the University of St. Gallen.
