There are many speculations, but what are robots really capable of? This lecture on the topic of artificial intelligence shows what opportunities and risks artificial intelligences hold. Computer scientist and brain researcher Dr Boris Nikolai Konrad knows how far artificial intelligence (AI) has been developed and researched so far. And he asks the provocative question: Will we remain smarter than the robots that are constantly learning? Because what has been shown in Hollywood science fiction films for decades - as loyal companions on adventure journeys like R2D2 or villains who want to usurp world domination - looks different in reality.

In his lecture "Artificial Intelligence - Will we stay smarter than the robots?", the keynote speaker illustrates the role artificial intelligence already plays in our everyday lives and which inventions will change our lives in the future - from music playlists that suggest suitable songs, to smart homes that control their own energy consumption, to self-driving cars that learn independently and, according to Konrad, will reach the mass market in just a few years. In an entertaining and entertaining way, he gives his audience a fascinating and at the same time realistic insight into the world of AI and robots.

"The image of robots is almost transfigured and romanticised these days," explains the brain researcher. However, we have come a long way from the tin can with a wind-up key on its back. Instead, there are already computer programmes that are more intelligent than we humans, at least in certain areas, Dr Boris Nikolai Konrad knows: "But we humans can also become more intelligent if we learn from machines or use the findings of brain research. Whether we are ready for this will determine whether we continue to control computers in the future or vice versa." Astonishment and shuddering lie close together in his lecture. For the science expert evokes both in equal measure in his audience when he takes a look at the future of artificial intelligence.

But do we have to be afraid of AI? In his lecture "Artificial Intelligence-Do we remain smarter than the robots?", the 5-star speaker clearly mentions the dangers of the new technologies, but he also recognises many opportunities in artificial intelligence, for example in medicine or for companies: In his lecture, Boris Nikolai Konrad shows how the use of big data can make more accurate predictions about customer behaviour than elaborate surveys and market studies. The brain researcher gives concrete recommendations for action on how companies can align their production, logistics and sales strategies on the basis of this data and thus have a clear competitive advantage. Because Dr. Boris Nikolai Konrad is convinced: "The one who uses the best AI and at the same time remains willing to learn from it will prevail on the market."
