Panel discussion: Artificial intelligence (AI) – what can it do, what should it do and what should it be allowed to do?

Baden-Württemberg is an important player in terms of research on and the development of AI-supported solutions. The spectrum of possible applications is wide and the hopes for this technology are high. But the public sphere is only now becoming aware of this topic and members of the public are beginning to demand answers to urgent questions: what is AI already capable of and what will it be capable of in the near future? What should it do and how realistic are our expectations? And finally, to what extent should political decisions be able to limit the use of AI? The following guests will be discussing these topics with the audience (in alphabetic order):

  • Theresia Bauer MdL, Minister of Science, Research and Art for the state of Baden-Württemberg
  • Prof. Dr. Philipp Hennig, holder of the Cyber Valley chair “Methods of machine learning”
  • Prof. Dr. Cordula Kropp, University of Stuttgart, Professor of Sociology, focusing on risk- and technology research
  • Prof. Dr. Michael Resch, University of Stuttgart, Director of the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and Director of the Institute for High-Performance Computing
