Epidsode 06: Can we rely on AI?
Time and again, AI hits the headlines for making mistakes. In some cases, they are very minor, and the consequences are not usually serious. But when fatal accidents are caused by AI-controlled, autonomous vehicles, confidence in artificial intelligence dwindles. Can we rely on AI?
In Episode 6 of “AI and Us”, we explore the tests and examinations artificial intelligence has to undergo before being used in the health service, for example, or in a self-driving car. As a general principle, AI must always first prove what it can do explain Christian Becker-Asano, Milica Gašić and Daniel Rückert, citing examples from their research.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation
Every year, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables more than 2,000 researchers from all over the world to spend time conducting research in Germany. The Foundation maintains a network of well over 30,000 Humboldtians from all disciplines in more than 140 countries worldwide – including 57 Nobel Laureates.
As part of the German government’s Artificial Intelligence Strategy, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation can appoint a total of 30 Alexander von Humboldt Professors for Artificial Intelligence in the years up to 2024. These chairs are contributing to work being done to comprehensively investigate the opportunities AI offers for our future and to make use of them. They will also help strengthen Germany’s standing as an internationally attractive and influential location in this important field.
