BI at the Science Café 'Artificial Intelligence' at DHMD

On 5 May 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., our scientist Joshwa Pohlmann will discuss the topic of 'Artificial Intelligence' together with citizens and researchers from Dresden at the Science Café of the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden.

What is artificial intelligence (AI)? What data do we produce? What are the benefits of AI in everyday life? Will AI make our lives better? We would like to talk about these questions and more in the discussion group ”Data everywhere? Living in Intelligent Environments.” The hopes and expectations but also the fears of citizens are important for our scientists’ work so that our research does not miss the reality of life.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is already being used in many areas of our society: in smartphones and in search engines, in medicine and in industrial production. Many other application areas are being developed and tested in which AI will become more and more part of our everyday lives in the future, whether in autonomous driving, in ”smart homes“ or ”smart cities.” Researchers at Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden universities and non-university research institutions are making important contributions to the further development of these new technologies. The partners have joined forces under the umbrella of DRESDEN-concept in order to network across institutions and disciplines.

The evening will be organized as a Science Café: In a relaxed atmosphere, citizens can exchange ideas with Dresden researchers on the topic of AI in various discussion groups, where each participant can take part in two discussion rounds. The researchers will be happy to answer questions on the topics of Smart City; AI and Traffic; AI in Education; AI in Medicine and Care; and Explainable AI.

The Science Café will be complemented by information booths and demonstrators, which visitors may discover and try out during the break between the two rounds of talks.

The evening will be hosted by Dr. Uta Bilow, Group leader Science Communication at the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics at TU Dresden.  

Questions about AI can be submitted in advance online at
