  2. Thomas Metzinger über künstliche Intelligenz und Ethik

    Die künstliche Intelligenz weckt grosse Hoffnungen, aber sie wirft auch schwierige ethische Fragen auf. Die EU habe mit eigenen Ethik-Richtlinien ein starkes Zeichen gesetzt, findet der deutsche Philosoph Thomas Metzinger im «Tagesgespräch». Gleichzeitig sei das Ergebnis enttäuschend und lauwarm.

    Keine Technologie drängt so stark in unser Leben und wirft gleichzeitig so drängende ethische Fragen auf wie die künstliche Intelligenz. Wie gehen wir damit um, wenn intelligente Maschinen darüber entscheiden, wer einen Kredit erhält? Oder wenn ein Algorithmus Job-Bewerber aufgrund ihrer Datenspuren im Internet auswählt? Noch weiter geht China mit einem geplanten Social-Credit-System, mit dem es seine eigenen Bürgerinnen und Bürger bewerten will. Den Einsatzmöglichkeiten von künstlicher Intelligenz sind scheinbar keine Grenzen gesetzt. Aber wer achtet dabei auf die Rechte und Bedürfnisse der Menschen? Wer setzt sich für einen ethischen Umgang ein? Die EU hat kürzlich ihre Richtlinien für einen ethischen Umgang mit künstlicher Intelligenz vorgestellt. Über 50 Experten hatten während Monaten an diesen Richtlinien gearbeitet. Auch der deutsche Philosoph Thomas Metzinger war Teil des Gremiums. Metzinger ist Professor für theoretische Philosophie an der Universität Mainz und beschäftigt sich seit über drei Jahrzehnten mit künstlicher Intelligenz und Ethik. Er sagt: Diese Ethik-Richtlinien sind das Beste, das es auf dem Planeten gibt. Gleichzeitig ist er nicht zufrieden mit dem Resultat. Wie geht das zusammen? Thomas Metzinger ist Gast von Barbara Peter.

  10. The Ace of Spades, with Eric Maddox – [Invest Like the Best, EP.15]

    This week we explore a rare and underappreciated skill through the lens of an incredible story. My guest is Eric Maddox, whose name you probably don’t know but won’t soon forget. Just trust me that you need to listen to this entire episode, and listen carefully—because that is what the episode is ultimately all about: how to listen to others, with care and empathy, in the age of distraction.

    Sometimes it’s fun not to know what’s coming and be surprised, so I won’t say anymore. After the episode, you can learn more about Eric at Ericmaddox.com.

    On his wall, Eric has a framed Cuban cigar, he starts his story by explaining the significance of that cigar. Enjoy this episode, and try Eric’s method. It has worked wonders for me.
