In the acatech HORIZONTE series, the German Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) investigates important fields of technology that are clearly emerging. The fourth volume examines the ubiquitous topic of artificial intelligence. With vivid illustrations that can be understood by everyone, it shows what artificial intelligence is, where it is already applied in industry and what might be possible in near future. It also deals with the questions of where Germany stands in international comparison, what role ethical aspects play and how artificial intelligence affects the labour market.

In preparing the publication, the acatech office was assisted by a group of experts consisting of the two heads, Prof. Otthein Herzog (Tongji University Shanghai/Jacobs University Bremen) and Prof. Jörg Franke (Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg), as well as Dr. Fabian Bause (Beckhoff Automation GmbH + Co. KG), Dr. Sebastian Busse (NEXT Data Service AG), Prof. Roman Dumitrescu (University of Paderborn), Dr. Jan-Henning Fabian (ABB), Prof. Thomas Kropf (Robert Bosch GmbH) and Prof. Philipp Slusallek (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence). In addition, further representatives from science, economy, politics and society were interviewed and their core ideas were listed in the text as anonymous quotations.
