In the second debate, we focus on the risks and pitfalls of increased use of artificial intelligence in Danish research and innovation. It is about the concrete challenges in everyday life in laboratories and research libraries, where large language models, such as ChatGPT, have made it easier to fabricate false references and plagiarise the work of others. In the debate, we will ask how these new challenges ought to be handled. Should it be left to each institution to develop guidelines or is there a need for national or European initiatives?

The debate will also invite more fundamental ethical considerations about the consequences of the use and dissemination of broad artificial intelligence in research and innovation. Where are the ethical pitfalls? A central discussion concerns the biases that we risk reproducing when using artificial intelligence. We ask which forums are taking on the task of developing the conversation about ethical issues. Finally, the use of artificial intelligence will be discussed in the context of security policy. Where is the balance between an ethically sound approach and the risk of losing the race with China and the US? And where should Denmark place itself?


Panel discussion:

  • Co-director Isabelle Augenstein, The Pioneer Centre for Artificial Intelligence, University of Copenhagen
  • CEO, Esben Kran, European Centers for AI Safety
  • Professor Sine Nørholm Just, RUC
  • Senior Vice President, Casper Klynge, Danish Chamber of Commerce

 The debate will be moderated by member Steffen Bohni, Danish Council for Research and Innovation Policy.
