How AI Research Makes us Rethink our Intelligence

Science of Intelligence (Cluster of Excellence) | Marc Toussaint

The more we learn about AI, the more we may wonder what this tells us about our own intelligence.

As part of the “6 o’clock with SCIoI” series of talks, Marc Toussaint will talk about how AI research often raises interesting questions about our own human intelligence.

The more AI research aims to understand notions such as rationality, thinking fast & slow, learning, as well as
creativity and explainability, the more we may wonder what this tells us about ourselves. In what sense do we actually make decisions? Are we optimal or rational? Are we creative? And why should we care to think?

While AI research might not provide the answers, this talk will discuss how concrete findings of AI research make us rethink such questions. The talk is followed by a discussion session with the audience.
