Weak AI - Strong AI

HOW TO AI: How intelligent is artificial intelligence?

Not all AIs are the same. Intelligent language assistants are just as much a part of the collective term artificial intelligence as machine translation or face recognition. However, a face recognition system is not able to translate text or to understand and answer questions. So the AIs have one thing in common: they are specialised […]

Artificial intelligence won’t replace us

As artificial intelligence polarises, the media attention around the topic increases. This is indeed very positive, as the public discourse leads to a wider and more even distribution of knowledge. But at the same time, it increases the diversity of interpretations and opinions, often resulting in the circulation of half-truths. As a result, uncertainty and […]

HOW TO AI: Navigating the buzzwords of artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning and natural language processing – when the conversation turns to artificial intelligence and the ubiquitous buzzwords begin to fly, non-developers soon switch off. These terms are often used too broadly, synonymously, or simply incorrectly. To shed a little light on this matter, and to help you deal with AI […]

Keeping Robots and Humans Separate

At the beginning of this month, the Financial Times posted an article about the setup of hybrid systems—where automated processes and humans work together—and of the different approaches that they often take. The story begins by telling of how a pedestrian was killed by one of Uber’s self-driving cars. It was an accident that occurred when the […]
