Scientist: Mark Dubrulle

Mark Dubrulle

Mark Dubrulle is the president of the Club de Rome – EU Chapter. He has been a pioneer and political activist, drawing attention to the necessity for environmental protection as early as 1970. Among many other achievements, he is a founding member of the Belgian confederation of nature conservation and environmental organisations. Having trained in psychology and sociology, he is deeply interested in the impact of technology on human behaviour and their consequences on current institutions, topics which are of great interest to the Club de Rome. As with other human « problématiques », the greatly respected organisation promotes « non-silo » thinking about technology, and analyses the current trends as phenomena which cannot be examined in isolation, but in relation with all other human activities.

Towards a democratically upgraded artificial intelligence

AI challenges democracies but democratic institutions, especially in the EU, are not mere bystanders and are in the process of supporting AI and providing a legal framing, through education and regulation.
