KI-Systeme und die individuelle Wahlentscheidung

Jessica Heesen, Christoph Bieber, Armin Grunwald, Tobias Matzner & Alexander Roßnagel
Fake news, disinformation campaigns, upload filters or even election recommendation apps are not new phenomena - even in the run-up to elections. The importance of artificial intelligence (AI) for opinion-forming and individual voting decisions is playing an increasingly important role in this context and evokes two opposing reflexes in the debate: on the one hand, its potential raises great expectations; on the other hand, its use triggers numerous fears such as loss of control, abuse...

acatech HORIZONTE Cybersecurity

Christina Müller-Markus
Worldwide, cyberattacks are rapidly increasing in variety and threat. In the digital world, IT systems are becoming so complex that the risks are difficult to assess: A single vulnerability is enough for cyber criminals to break into an entire system and cause damage. Individuals are an important gateway for many hacker attacks. SMEs in particular need to develop a much more critical awareness of cyber threats and provide regular training for professionals and employees. Because...

Kompetenzentwicklung für Künstliche Intelligenz

Elisabeth André & Wilhelm Bauer
Artificial intelligence promises many opportunities for companies and employees, for example through useful assistance functions, new business models or the relief of routine tasks. A central challenge for the introduction of AI technologies in the working environment is the qualification of employees, since AI systems will change the task and role profiles of employees. Early skills development is therefore a key component in making companies and employees fit for the AI age. In a white...

acatech HORIZONTE Nachhaltige Landwirtschaft

Alexandra Heimisch-Röcker
When the topic of “sustainable agriculture” comes up, many people first think of the small farms producing food in organic quality. But sustainability is multi-layered and more than “just” organic. This HORIZONS issue aims to create awareness for all aspects of “sustainability”. The high relevance of the topic stems primarily from the high degree of digitalization in today’s agriculture, which is discussed under the term “smart farming”. Technology can be used to make farm processes...

acatech HORIZONS Urban Mining

Christina Müller-Markus
The earth’s resources are finite. If we use them wastefully, they will not be able to sustain humanity in the long term. Nevertheless, anything that has reached the end of its useful life is very often thrown away after a short time. This is precisely where urban mining comes in: instead of mining more and more primary materials, the aim is to consistently reuse the stocks of secondary materials which have previously lain unused in...

Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann – wie die Energiewende gelingt

Andreas W. Bett, Berit Erlach, Ulrich Glotzbach, Justus Haucap, Hans-Martin Henning, Jürgen Kühling, Anja Lapac, Ellen Matthies, Karen Pittel, Mario Ragwitz, Jürgen Renn, Dirk Uwe Sauer, Christoph M. Schmidt, Indra Spiecker genannt Döhmann, Frithjof Staiß, Annika Seiler, Cyril Stephanos, Eberhard Umbach & Anke Weidlich
Die nächsten vier Jahre sind Countdown und Chance zugleich: Trifft die neue Bundesregierung nicht schnell wegweisende Entscheidungen, sind die deutschen Klimaziele für 2030 und 2045 kaum mehr zu erreichen. Begreift sie hingegen die neue Legislaturperiode als Möglichkeit für eine fundamentale und zukunftsweisende Neuausrichtung, kann sie der Klima- und Energiepolitik einen dringend benötigten Anschub geben, um unwiderrufliche Folgen durch den Klimawandel abzuwenden. Mit dem Impulspapier „Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann – wie die Energiewende gelingt“ legt...

Kritikalität von KI-Systemen in ihren jeweiligen Anwendungskontexten

Jessica Hessen, Jörn Müller-Quade & Stefan Wrobel
Der Einsatz von KI-Systemen birgt ein großes Nutzenpotenzial in vielen Bereichen unseres Lebens. Gleichzeitig kann die Anwendung mancher KI-Systeme aber auch ein gewisses Risiko mit sich bringen. Ziel ist es, vertrauenswürdige KI-Systeme in die Anwendung zu bringen, und gleichzeitig Überregulierung zu vermeiden sowie Innovationen zu fördern. Die Europäische Kommission hat deshalb im April 2021 einen Vorschlag zur Regulierung von KI-Systemen vorgelegt. Expertinnen und Experten der Arbeitsgruppen IT-Sicherheit, Privacy, Recht und Ethik sowie Technologische Wegbereiter und...

STADT.LAND.CHANCEN

Moritz Julian Maier, Lynn Harles, Alexandra Heimisch-Röcker, Simone Kaiser & Martina Schraudner
Nicht erst seit der COVID-19-Pandemie stellen sich mehr Menschen in Deutschland die Frage, wie sie in Zukunft in der Stadt, in der Kleinstadt oder auf dem Dorf leben wollen. Technologien spielen in diesen Überlegungen eine wichtige Rolle – sie werden auch zukünftig unseren Alltag prägen. Um zu veranschaulichen, wie insbesondere bioökonomische Innovationen unser Leben und Miteinander in der Stadt und auf dem Land verändern könnten, haben acatech – Deutsche Akademie der Technikwissenschaften, das Center for...

acatech HORIZONTE Künstliche Intelligenz in der Industrie

Christina Müller-Markus
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been ubiquitous in our everyday lives for several years. It helps us shop online, listen to music or read online news. But what is "artificial intelligence" and why is it important for Germany as a manufacturing nation? How do we compare internationally with "AI Made in Germany", where is it already being used in industry today, what is still possible in the future - and would it be possible without it...

acatech HORIZONS Transforming Mobility

Christina Müller-Markus
When people think of mobility, they often first think of the car, the bicycle, the bus or the train. But mobility is much more than that: it enables us to get to work, go shopping or to the doctor, meet friends and take our children to school. In other words, it is also a way of participating in life. At the same time, it generates traffic, which in turn has serious consequences for the environment....

acatech HORIZONTE Quantentechnologie

Alexandra Heimisch-Röcker & Christina Müller-Markus
Will the quantum compute replace the traditional computer in the living room in a few years? This is unlikely, even if some headlines may sound like it. Many myths surround the second generation of quantum technologies, to which the quantum computer belongs too. This is also because the fundamentals of this technology – quantum and their manipulation – could hardly be further from our everyday world. This HORIZONS issue aims to shed light on how...
