According to the WHO about 8.5% of the world’s population are currently infected or have died because of Covid-19, compared to 30% who were infected or died due to the Spanish Flu. The application of AI such as the rapid development of new vaccines have so far played a major role in preventing a global disaster.
Yet the Covid-19 pandemic has left serious scars both individually as well as economically. The massive rise of unemployment due to corporate closings severely threatens the foundation of our socioeconomic balance.
To heal the scars and to restore trust in our democratic culture we need a creative mindset of solving problems by fostering the cooperation between humans and intelligent machines.
