Reading time approx. 10 minutes: In the previous article we added two distinctions to our initial definition of AI: On the one hand we distinguish between strong and weak AI (Terminator & Science Fiction vs. the scientific status quo). Also we pointed out the difference between symbolic AI and Machine Learning. Let’s remember: Symbolic AI attempts […]

Understanding AI – Part 2: Symbolic AI, Neural Networks and Deep Learning

Reading time approx. 10 minutes: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is as old as computer science itself. Calculations, logical deductions, complex assignments… all this was once restricted to humans, until computers came forth. Even the performance of the early and (from today’s perspective) primitive computing systems seemed to imitate the human mind and it’s accomplishments. No wonder Alan […]

Understanding AI – Part 1: What is AI?

Reading time approx. 10 minutes: From household help to doomsday scenario – there’s hardly a topic where public perception, state of research and reality seem so incongruent as with artificial intelligence. Reason enough to shed some light onto this subject with a series of articles. The aim is to explain in a comprehensible and approachable […]
