As a key technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly driving the global digital revolution. AI refers to computer programs that can automatically perceive, recognise connections, make decisions, and learn from them. AI applications must first be developed and trained with large amounts of data, for example to translate languages independently or to predict changes in climate or health. Especially in industrialised countries, AI is already being used to solve concrete problems. Be it in business or administration, the judicial system, environmental protection, or the health industry.
