How Artificial Intelligence is revolutionizing our everyday lives

© Zeit Stiftung

Artificial intelligence is changing our world at breakneck speed.  This has become especially noticeable to the public since the popularization of ChatGPT. The AI chatbot system provides surprisingly clever answers to all kind of questions, can write essays and technical articles, term papers, recipes or even poems and software that are deceptively similar to the products of human creativity. AI is no longer an utopia for scientists in Silicon Valley, but accessible to everyone.

But what does it mean, if AI is inextricably rooted in everyday live? How will AI change the way we produce knowledge, art, and entertainment? Do we need to relearn how to critically question texts and facts? How is AI transforming the world of work and how is it affecting our relationships? What happens when machines reproduce the biases of their inventors? Who defines the legal and ethical guardrails for AI systems? Who controls whether they work in the interest of their inventors and the general public? Can AI (simulate) love and friendship or even develop consciousness?
