UppTalk Weekly is a popular science seminar series via Zoom where you get to enjoy interesting conversations and interdisciplinary panel discussions with researchers from Uppsala University every Tuesday at lunch. The conversations revolve around socially relevant topics and where you as an audience have the opportunity to ask questions to our researchers.

How does the labour market change when robots take over certain jobs? How will artificial intelligence affect democracy, human dignity and human rights? How does the introduction of artificial intelligence alter research in e.g. biomedicine? How will artificial intelligence impact health care, ability to identify diseases, as well as provide treatment? These are some of the questions that will be addressed and discussed by researchers invited to this episode of UppTalk weekly.

The seminar will be in English
