At the second workshop in the NextGen Network in Berlin, Germany, participants met in groups and were tasked with imagining a scenario in 2028 to brainstorm practical applications of AI with a mock news article that, when ethically implemented, could improve German society. The discussions about values fed into group perceptions of how AI could be used to solve pressing social problems, such as: the effects of climate change, the changing landscape of traditional industries like agriculture, the logistics of healthcare systems, and the prevalence of incurable diseases like cancer.
