KIT Science Week

From October 5 to 10, 2021, the first KIT Science Week took place under the heading “The Human in the Center of Learning Systems”.

The program covered the complete scope of AI applications in production and work, mobility, healthcare, nursing care and households, weather and climate (in particular, data analysis) as well as communication. Together with representatives of politics and industry as well as citizens, we discussed the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence and how AI can be used for the benefit of our society.
