Machine+Behavior Conference

Join us for a transformative journey as we delve into and shape the future of AI and society:

Machines powered by artificial intelligence (AI) increasingly mediate our social, cultural, economic, and political interactions. With the rise of generative AI, machines are also becoming active agents in the world. Understanding the emergent behavioral dynamics of intelligent machines and human-machine collectives is essential to our ability to control their actions, reap their benefits, and minimize their harms.

The Machine+Behavior conference is a continuation of a discussion that started in this Nature article, which aims to scope a broad scientific research agenda to study machine behaviour and its relation to human behavior.

The conference brings together scientists from computer science and behavioral science (psychology, cognitive science, economics, political science, anthropology, biology, etc.) to advance our understanding of human and machine behavior. The conference will explore the fundamental questions of this emerging field, as well as the technical, legal, and institutional constraints on the study of machine behaviour.

Featured are many incredible speakers across variety of disciplines, including Joëlle Barral (AI & Natural Sciences), Iain Couzin (Animal Behavior), David Sloan Wilson (Evolutionary Biology), Joel Leibo and Moritz Hardt (Machine Learning), Kinga Makovi, Claudia Wagner and Meeyoung Cha (Computational Social Science), James Evans (Sociology), Ophelia Deroy (Philosophy), Anita Wooley (Collaborative Intelligence), Marija Slavkovik (AI Ethics & Collective Reasoning), Krishna Gummadi (Social Computing), Claudia Wagner (Computational Social Science).

Join us on April 29-30 in Berlin for a transformative journey as we delve into and shape the future of AI and society.
