Artificial intelligence

Development of AI happens faster than ever, but how far have we come?

Artificial intelligence, AI, is here to stay and the development seems to have no limits, but how far have we come in terms of the technology's potential?

Artificial intelligence is developing at an incredibly fast pace. The potential is enormous and it's hard to see where it will end.

Artificial intelligence is based on maths and logic. We know the work processes, but we don't always know how the AI arrives at a particular solution. Therefore, as researchers and society, we must make demands on the use of the technology, both in legislation and morally.

At DTU, we have a special focus on the ethical aspect of future AI solutions.
