Course information

Eines haben all diese Technologien gemeinsam: es werden hohe Erwartungen an sie gerichtet, gleichzeitig gibt es aber auch Ängste und Kritik aus vielen Teilen der Gesellschaft.

Wir wollen in diesem Kurs wissenschaftlich neutral und seriös erklären , was tatsächlich hinter den viel diskutierten Begriffen steht. Sie lernen die technologischen Grundlagen, den aktuellen Stand und typische Anwendungsfälle kennen.

Unter anderem werden Sie nach diesem Kurs wissen :

  • was sich hinter der Blockchain-Technologie verbirgt und wie sie im Falle von Kryptowährungen eingesetzt wird
  • welche Möglichkeiten das Internet der Dinge eröffnet, unsere Umwelt „smart“ zu gestalten
  • in welchen Bereichen Künstliche Intelligenz aktuell und zukünftig eine Rolle spielt und was dies für die jeweiligen Branchen bedeutet.
