Augmented Intelligence

While the technologies surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics were often seen as an opportunity to completely replace tasks performed by humans, it has turned out that this is often not at all expedient. Humans and machines have different characteristics: while computers are good at evaluating large amounts of data within a short time, they lack the ability to reflect on decisions. We therefore speak of Augmented Intelligence, which complements humans and supports them in their daily work, and does not replace them. We address the questions of how humans and AI/robots can work together efficiently, and how their respective capabilities can complement each other. In addition, we address issues of fairness and inclusion. Methods are being developed to prevent parts of the digital society from being excluded or discriminated against based on automated decisions.
