What will the coexistence and interaction of people, animals and plants on the one hand and machines on the other with the increasing digitization and the interaction of natural and artificial intelligence look like in the future? Can the scope and intensity of the new synergies be determined?

It is not only about new forms of communication and interaction between people, but also about the interaction with other living beings or non-living objects. The extended co-action implies fundamental legal, ethical and anthropological problems, which were presented and discussed in an interdisciplinary manner during this 1st BWG Symposium.
