In this picture, two heads are schematically shown overlapping. One of the heads is filled with circuits. A symbolic image for artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) today sometimes beats even the shrewdest experts - and yet is inferior to any toddler. Especially when it comes to recognising complex patterns in large amounts of data, AI is hard to beat. It is being used in more and more areas and can make our lives easier in many areas. However, it now also often makes decisions with far-reaching consequences for people. This places special demands on its reliability and transparency, and also raises ethical questions.
