Why can a computer recognize which words I speak? Can you be able to do something without understanding it? Does an Artificial Intelligence sometimes make mistakes? How does a Neural Network learn and what is training data?

Answers to these and other questions on the topic of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) can be found by interested people of all ages in the exhibition “I AM A.I. – explaining artificial intelligence.”, shown by the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Michael Stifel Center Jena. I AM A.I. was designed by IMAGINARY gGmbH in cooperation with international partners – funded by the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung.

In I AM A.I., abstract concepts up to everyday situations are addressed. The aim is not only to explain facts, but also to critically engage with the topic A.I. In addition to exhibits on speech and handwriting recognition, a simulation shows, for example, how learning works through rewards. Another topic is the ethics of autonomous vehicles: Does A.I. make road traffic safer? Here, visitors can specify decision-making guidelines that help the A.I. to react adequately in unforeseen situations. In addition, neural networks – the core of important A.I. methods – can be trained. They are fed data to help them recognize patterns more quickly and confidently.
