“RESEARCH IS BECOMING MORE SENSITIVE”
Artificial intelligence (AI) is fundamentally changing the collaboration between humans and machines. Where are the ethical boundaries in mechanical engineering? We asked an expert from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Simone Kaiser is the Deputy Head of the Research Unit for Responsible Research and Innovation at the Institute for Organisational Development and Work Design.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AS THE DRIVER OF THE SECOND WAVE OF DIGITALIZATION
Internet technologies and the related cloud solutions have been driving the first wave of digitalization for over 20 years.
