Andeutung zum Inhalt
Die aktuelle Aufregung um die Neuronalen Netze möchte ich in historischer, gestalterischer und mathematischer Perspektive aufgreifen, um Aufklärung gegen einen neu entfachten Mythos zu setzen. Wir werden die Anfänge der sog. Künstlichen Intelligenz berühren und ihren aktuell ausgebrochenen "Hoch-Sommer".

I will take up the current hype surrounding Neural Networks. Our perspective will be from history, design, and mathematics. I want to confront the current newly ignited myth of Neural Networks by rational thinking. We will look at the beginnings of so-called Artificial Intelligence, as well as the new break-out of a high summer.
