Ada Events during years

Ada Lovelace Festival is where you collaborate and co-create by exploring diverse future-oriented topics and emerging technologies such as AI, New Work, and Sustainability in the Digital Age.

Since 2024 we have integrated our Morals & Machines conference into the Ada Lovelace Festival. On our Morals & Machines stage you will find topics like AI and ethics. Let’s bring memories back together.

Beyond the Visible

What can we learn from the various life cycle stages of the web for developing its future? How will visions and hype of the Metaverse and Web3 come into play and again change the way we express our identities, create and reward value, and solve the most important problems facing our society? These are the questions we discussed with you at the Ada Lovelace Festival 2022.

Our Future: A Quantum World

The future of the computer is also a metaphor for changing the world. What effects does the new technology have on the economy and society? How will the quantum state change us? And how can we shape this change? These are the questions we discussed with you at the Ada Lovelace Festival 2021.

Owning the Future

Our world is getting faster, more digital, more transparent and more accessible. Tech shapes our economy as much as it guides our individual daily lives. To what extent do we still own the digital path we are on?

Building Bridges - Can AI save Humanity?

What does the future hold for humanity and our species? Technical revolutions of the last century, digitizing processes, the rise of artificial intelligence as well as genetic engineering seem to offer endless possibilities for human evolution.As robots are becoming more autonomous, the notion of computer-controlled machines facing ethical decisions is moving out of the science fiction sphere and into the real world. Our society therefore needs to find solutions to improve our ways of making moral judgements, to challenge AI and to develop rules managing machine learning systems.
