Scientists from various disciplines are working on the topic of artificial intelligence. At information and networking events, they engage in dialogue with decision-makers from business, politics and the media – and also reach interested members of the public.

A key technology for everything and everyone? What artificial intelligence does and doesn't do
Scientific debate, Jülich Forschungszentrum, 10 October 2019

AI is on everyone's lips. But what exactly is AI, and where does it start? What can it do, and what can it not do? In a debate style inspired by the British House of Commons—a new format in science communication—renowned researchers explain in detail their positions on the foundations of human and machine intelligence, on the opportunities and applications of artificial intelligence, and on the consequences of an AI-based society. At the same time, all participants are invited to actively contribute their thoughts and positions during the debate. Finally, they can demonstrate their opinion by choosing and changing seats. The host of the Leopoldina debate on 10 October will be Jülich Forschungszentrum.
