With ever-advancing machine learning algorithms, AI can make ever-more precise inference using an ever-expanding set of behavioral data online. In particular, AI that functions as decision-support has developed and spread amazingly fast.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>This presentation articulates some of the ensuing social challenges. It accounts for work in progress within the project <em>Predicting the diffusion of artificial intelligence (WASP-HS)</em>, in which we ask:</div> <div>How are AI-technologies adopted in society? Do they diffuse similarly as earlier general-purpose technologies? Do concerns about privacy, autonomy, and fairness influence potential adopters of AI? What are the social and ethical implications of the AIs that are likely to spread particularly fast?</div> <br /><div><strong>Emma Engström</strong> is a researcher within the theme <em>The societal impact of new technologies</em> at the Institute for Futures studies in Stockholm, and a researcher at the Department of Urban planning and Environment (KTH). She holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering (KTH), an MSc in Engineering Physics (KTH), and a BSc in Political Science (Uppsala University).

The energy transformation from fossil fuels to renewable sources has significant challenges due to raw material shortages. International Energy Agency has an ambitious target to reach photovoltaic (PV) solar panel capacity that covers more than 20% of the global energy demand. Although policymakers and manufacturers draw a bright future, natural source limitation is a nightmare for PV technology. Additionally, end-of-life solar panels will dramatically affect the waste stream, and currently, there is no sustainable recycling for their waste. </div> <div>Our research maps the critical metals for PV industry and their circularity and developing recycling processes of these metals from manufacturing and end-of-life waste. The analysis clearly showed that silver, indium, and gallium supplies are the bottlenecks of the industry due to resource limitations and the importance of the other industrial applications of these metals. Although recycling critical metals from production waste requires straightforward processes, there are still technical and economical challenges to implementation. Considering end-of-life PV modules, their recycling requires a com​bination of mechanical, pyrometallurgical and hydrometallurgical processing approaches. </div> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="/en/staff/Pages/Burcak-Ebin.aspx">Dr. Burcak Ebin​</a>, <span style="background-color:initial">Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Industrial Materials Recycling, </span><span style="background-color:initial">is working on recycling of alkaline, NiMH and Li-ion battery waste by pyrometallurgical processes.

Other than the intriguing challenges involved, there are many potential advantages in doing so, one of them being that we already know how to interact with each other, so communicating with human-like systems should be intuitive for us. However, there are also potential disadvantages and risks involved. In this talk, I will present our own research on these aspects and discuss how we can approach the question in a more systematic way. </div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Gabriel Skantze</strong> is a Professor in Speech Technology at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
