From 26th – 28th June the summer of purpose brings together people from science, art and culture, politics, business, sport and society to initate a creative dialogue about questions that seem more pressing than ever during times of crises: Which purpose should our economic activity have in the future? What should the common response out of the crisis look like? How do we make sure that humanity can once again play a more important role in our economies and ecologies?
The covid-19 pandemic has clearly highlighted old and new boundaries to humanity and is a call to action – now more than ever. At the same time, a lot of tried and tested recipes and solutions are obsolete. It is becoming increasingly apparent that instead creative thinking is needed. A thinking that is the result of inspiring conversations and fresh dialogues - intiated and catalysed during three days of summer of purpose.
CHEMISTREE proudly provides the technical platform for community management and matching to initiate purpose-driven connections.

"Framework for the human-centred use of AI in work and society" – this is the title of the specialist forum on 26th February in Berlin hosted by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection and the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community.
CHEMISTREE Founder Rosmarie Steininger was one of two dozen leading experts from science, associations, foundations and practice that discussed with representatives of the ministries what groundwork should be laid in order to use algorithm-based systems and artificial intelligence for the benefit of people and society. The basis for this included the recommended actions of the Data Ethics Commission from October 2019 and the White Paper on Artificial Intelligence: a European approach to excellence and trust by the European Commission from February 2020.
Rosmarie Steininger presented the CHEMISTREE model, based on transparency and data sovereignty, using a current project as an example. She emphasised that she did not only want to make an argument from a business point of view but also provide a best practice model for other providers in the market. “What we achieved at Deutsche Bahn working together with the personnel department and the works council is truly a role model! I think this broad scope of discussion is important and right if we want to achieve trustworthy AI.”, she concluded.
Dealing with artificial intelligence in work and society is also one of the focal points of the German AI observatory, which started its work on March 3rd in Berlin.
