Artificial Intelligence

Since the publication of ChatGPT, a language-based artificial intelligence (AI), on November 30, 2022, AI has been the subject of global discussion. It often remains unclear what is meant by AI, and at the same time, much of the significant knowledge that has already been gained in this area is not discussed. Using examples from various fields of knowledge – medicine, the military, climate, the natural sciences and humanities, crime prevention, politics, business – as well as from everyday life, this book shows what AI is and what AI can do. It is already permeating our lives and our communities without any regulation, not to mention technology assessment. While ChatGPT essentially produces “stupidity” at worst, the situation is different in other areas: if we are not careful, AI can threaten humanity in the wrong hands. But it can also – if used correctly – help to solve urgent problems.

Prof. Dr. Dr. Manfred Spitzer studied medicine, psychology and philosophy in Freiburg. After his habilitation in psychiatry, he worked as a senior physician at the psychiatric university hospital in Heidelberg. Research stays in the USA (Harvard University and University of Oregon) shaped Manfred Spitzer’s further scientific work at the interface of neurobiology, psychology and psychiatry. Manfred Spitzer has been Medical Director of the Psychiatric University Clinic in Ulm since 1997. In 2004, he founded the Transfer Center for Neuroscience and Learning (ZNL).

To the Keynote:

Aging gracefully with technology – are we ready?

Demographic change is one of the greatest challenges of our time, as the global population is getting older and older. Against this backdrop, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and modern technologies in the field of ambient assisted living (AAL) is becoming increasingly relevant for active, healthy and fulfilling ageing. The artiso INNO DAY 2024 is dedicated to this important topic and offers a platform for innovative solutions and discussions. The aim is to show ways in which technology can improve and extend the lives of older people. This discussion is particularly relevant in the context of Karl Lauterbach’s efforts to promote care at home and relieve the burden on nursing homes.

I have been at the helm of artiso solutions GmbH as founder, partner and managing director since 1991. Together with a passionate team, we have shaped artiso into a successful software development company. It is important for our growth and our success that we constantly reinvent ourselves and are always one step ahead of economic and technical change with innovative products.

When the internet was made accessible to the public in the 90s, this was also my professional milestone to allow digitalization to flourish into my profession over the last 25 years. Through numerous roles and functions, my path led me to artiso, where I have been driving innovation with a focus on sustainability as “Director Business & Product Innovations” since 2021. In my podcast “InnoBytes”, I talk to interesting tech start-ups and innovative companies every two weeks together with my colleague Alexander Eble. This gives me a good insight behind the scenes of many companies that deal with technology for senior citizens. I am always fascinated by the motivation and inner drive of the young companies that – against all odds – invent digital solutions for health and care.
