Dimensions of Artificial Intelligence

Digital kick-off event: 16th July 2021, 1:30 to 4:00 p.m.

The SAN provides an interdisciplinary perspective on the methodological and technological dimensions of artificial intelligence (AI) as a new key technology. For several years, AI has been experiencing a strong increase in attention in research, business, culture, and the media. At the same time, AI is also assuming an increasingly important role in government action. The Study Commission “Artificial Intelligence – Social Responsibility and Economic, Social and Ecological Potentials” of the German Bundestag suggests that AI development should not only serve economic goals but also socially progressive purposes, e.g., in the areas of health, education, traffic change, climate change and participation, or especially highly topical in the management of pandemics. Due to its social relevance, a responsible approach to AI must be considered at the same time. This includes, among other things, the traceability of the results of AI methods, the protection of privacy and questions of data sovereignty as well as the protection of minorities.

At the kick-off event, researchers from DRESDEN-concept partner institutions will present pertinent results. We cordially invite you to participate by presenting a short lecture [max. 5 slides in 5 minutes]. The SAN will be held in English. After the kick-off event, follow-up meetings will be held in order to intensify networking aimed at initiating research projects.

The kick-off event is organized in cooperation with the Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (ScaDS.AI) Dresden/Leipzig, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as a competence center for artificial intelligence within the framework of the AI strategy.
