Artificial intelligence should not replace thinking

Editorial

Artificial intelligence should not replace thinking

Nearly two-thirds of Germans feel that artificial intelligence in future electronic devices is a good idea. However, consumers feel it is important for smart assistants to know their limits: 84 percent want intelligent household robots, smart cars and medical electronics to help people -- but they don't want them to make our own thoughts superfluous. lesen

Flexible electronics

Determining what will be needed in five years’ time

Our task as a research center is to offer our partners technical solutions for their future applications, two to three product generations ahead in time. But when it comes to flexible electronics, the industry does not follow predetermined roadmaps that we can use to base our research on. Therefore, the big challenge that faces us every year is to accurately assess what our partners will need in five years’ time. lesen
