The procedures from the field of artificial intelligence are changing both the economy and society in a variety of ways. New milestones are reached almost every month and much that was considered impossible – such as the fact that an AI shines in the game Go – has turned out to be quite feasible.
On the other hand, no technology, however pioneering, is immune to exaggerations, setbacks and false promises. As an example of this, we can only mention Tay. It should also be borne in mind that we are currently (2019) at the height of a hype cycle that many companies are trying to exploit for themselves and by far not all alleged “AIs” are really AIs.
The aim of this website is to clear this fog a little and to focus attention on points that stand in the way of a properly functioning AI or are indispensable for its quality assurance. Far away from technology pessimism, we consider it essential to have solid checks and approach things in a realistic way.
