2018 - Artificial Intelligence



MILSET Young Citizens Conferences are dedicated to the views and concerns of youth regarding the social impact of science and technology on the modern world, gathering their voices from every part of the globe and encouraging them to actively enter the discussion. 

The exponential growth of new technologies and scientific knowledge has generated new and exciting possibilities; however, this has also raised new ethical, social and ecological issues. We believe that the open-mindedness of young scientists combined with their sense of social responsibility can yield important contributions to the dialogue. 

Throughout the year, local, regional and national youth STEAM organisations around the world are invited to organise YCCs on the topic to encourage youth to discuss their thoughts and propose suggestions based on their knowledge and experience. 

Conferences follow the three-step methodology:

  • Concerns
  • Discussion
  • Actions.


2018 Topic: Artificial Intelligence

Robots and intelligent systems are being introduced everywhere. They work in our factories, play with our children and help run our houses. You no longer need a human assistant to check in for your flight or to translate your text into another language. Robots can already do many things, but how about tomorrow? In the future, will we find ourselves surrounded by robots doing everything? If so, what will WE – humans – do then? 

Here are some questions we invite you to think about. There are many more that you can propose for discussion:

  • Can robots replace people; can artificial intelligence replace human intelligence? And if so, should we give robots the same rights as humans, or should they always be our obedient servants?
  • What human jobs will disappear with the development of artificial intelligence? What jobs will remain and what new jobs will be created?
  • Who bears the responsibility for errors in artificial intelligence algorithms that result in harm or death?


Let's share youth ideas with the world!

As a YCC organiser sum-up the results of the discussion and fill in the report form

Make short  videos  of participants during the activity, and send the best one to ycc@milset.org which will be  posted on the MILSET website and MILSET Facebook.

If you are going to send a video please consider the following information:

  • The Video Format should be MP4 from 24 to 29fps
  • The resolution should be 1080 x 1080 px
  • It must be short and include the topic or subtopic, the discussion and the actions to be taken
