15.10.2018, 16 Uhr c.t. TU Berlin, EN building, seminar room EN 719 (7th floor), Einsteinufer 17, 10587 Berlin: "Some Philosophical Considerations Regarding “AI”" (Birgit Beck, TU Berlin, FG Ethik und Technikphilosophie)

In today’s society, the notion of “artificial intelligence” is ubiquitous. Recently, there are voices from
science, politics and economy calling for “ethical guidelines” regarding AI. Although ethical guidelines
are certainly a good thing to have, it appears necessary, first and foremost, to determine what exactly
the object of such guidelines would be.
The present talk addresses this question by scrutinising the meaning of “artificial intelligence” and
assumes on the basis of some exemplary instances of “AI” that the notion of “artificial intelligence”
simpliciter is a vague and, therefore, misleading term.
