KIT Science Week 2021

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

Artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-based technologies and applications will determine our future everyday life, work, and society far more than they do today. Learning systems provide tremendous opportunities to shape our information society and to establish safe and environmentally compatible mobility. Visions and questions relating to learning systems, also in the context of digitization, will be in the focus of the KIT Science Week 2021.

Artificial intelligence is advancing at high speed, it has an enormous change potential which most probably will be of revolutionary character. Generally, it will be important to use AI for the society’s benefit. At KIT, we therefore consider it our responsibility not only to push the development of new technologies, but also to analyze their impacts and consider their risks from the very beginning. The events of the KIT Science Week will deal with precisely these potentials and risks.

KIT’s vast expertise in AI is acknowledged worldwide. KIT forms part of an extensive network with strong partners from industry. This specially applies to the areas of robotics, automation, autonomous systems, and human-machine interaction. During the KIT Science Week, activities for the public to participate, exhibitions, presentations of films or panel discussions will provide fascinating insight into KIT’s competences in the area of learning systems. Enjoy a diverse program relating to the thrilling diversity of learning systems.
