Artificial intelligence (AI) is an ancient buzzword, stimulating people’s imagination since decades. Today, AI is once again discussed as “the next big thing”. At the “Economic Summit”, a leading business conference organized by Süddeutsche Zeitung, Chris Boos, CEO of Arago, tried to ease fears. Today’s research is far away from creating a “silicon human”. However, intelligent machines might replace simple human labor, making people unemployed – but only to some extent. Still, people want to be served by people.
