The world is undergoing a profound transformation; artificial intelligence (AI) is permeating both science and society. Nationally and internationally, the same questions preoccupy us: are humans adapting more and more to AI, or is AI adapting to humans? How will we live tomorrow? To this end, basci.net builds a bridge between different countries and regions as well as between science and society. Together, we address the topic of AI from different perspectives and consider it with our cooperation partners in a regional as well as - in an international context - co-hosted by our Brazilian partners from academia and extramural research.

AI-Talk: Frankenstein - The First Artificial Man
In Mary Shelley's novel "Frankenstein - or the Modern Prometheus" the first artificial man - the first artificial intelligence, so to speak - is created . Prof. Dr. Marion Maria Ruisinger, Prof. Dr. Georg Rosenfeld and Sonja Bedington discuss trust in science as well as freedom, responsibility and communication in science. Filming took place at the German Museum of Medical History in Ingolstadt, under Corona conditions and therefore with FFP2 masks. How fitting that Mary Shelley also wrote the novel "The Last Man: A Pandemic Novel".

International AI Science Week
Doors open with the mouse
The university opened its doors to the mouse: On 3 October, it was explained to the around 130 participating children why search engines often know more about us than we do ourselves. How machines can learn how we humans think. Chemical compounds that make crystals shimmer in all the colours of the rainbow. Why exciting connections between metals generate electricity. Or how connecting the real world with the virtual world can make going to school safer.
