Discussing the Impact of AI & Digital Technologies on our Society. Think before you code.

ThinkTech is an independent nonprofit association of critical thinkers and makers, researchers and entrepreneurs, coders, philosophers, lawyers, artists and everyone else who wants to join the discussion. We are driven by the goal to understand, discuss, and shape the impact of artificial intelligence and other digital technologies on individuals and society. Aiming for a beneficial and sustainable use of these technologies, we seek to assess and address their chances and challenges: to contribute to academic discourse, to foster an informed public debate, and to provide scientific policy advice.
