In Einzeldisziplinen sind Roboter uns Menschen längst überlegen. Die eierlegende Wollmilchsau insgesamt gibt es noch nicht. Je nach Definition des Menschen werden wir diesen Punkt vielleicht auch gar nicht erreichen. ChatGPT zeigt aber, mit welchem Tempo sich die Entwicklung vollzieht. Elisa berichtet von der Enttäuschung ihrer Marketing-Mitarbeiterin. Die wollte einen Workshop machen, um besser schreiben zu lernen. Inzwischen weiß sie: ChatGPT kann das bereits übernehmen, sie muss es nicht mehr lernen. Treffen wir uns dann mit den Maschinen auf Augenhöhe? Elisa widerspricht. Jedenfalls aber haben Menschen offensichtlich keine Schwierigkeiten mit der Fiktion, uns stehe ein echter Akteur gegenüber, mit dem wir sprechen können, der in uns Emotionen weckt.

Transparency and Explainability in AI and Robotics

We will talk about why transparency matters in algorithmic decision-making and how it is different from explainability. We will discuss this on the example of Twitter, recent news related to Musk's intentions making Twitter's algorithms open-source - whether it is a bad news or a good news. And additionally, Elisa will bring her real-life examples about robotics.
