Artificial Intelligence: Gigantic Jobkiller? The next step in evolution, with which technology will finally outstrip us? Or are they curative systems that develop new drugs for us and operate on us, that invest and increase our capital, that even make us the better – because objective – boss? Artificial intelligence has many faces and they all guarantee attention.

Soberly speaking, the recent development of Artificial Intelligence is indeed breathtaking. And it will become even faster in the future. The reason for this is simple: never before has so much investor capital been on the lookout for the successful technologies and innovations of tomorrow. The concentration of scientific and economic power that prevails today at Google, Amazon and Co. is shifting scientific research from the military and elite universities to the private sector and putting it on a broad basis.
Expectations are therefore high and the investments promise substantial profits in the future. Deep learning, self-learning neural networks, autonomous mobile robots and smart digital assistants – they are supposed to be the next big game changers and they have what it takes.
