For the past 19 years, Children's University provides lectures given by HSG professors aimed at children to illuminate the diverse research fields found at HSG. And in doing so, the event has become an integral part of campus life.
On the first afternoon of Children's University 2023, Professor Jan Marco Leimeister will reveal to students the tricks with which artificial intelligence influences and deceives our perception. In general, AI will soon touch all areas of our daily lives and present society with major new challenges. Neither with news reports nor with photos or video contributions on the Internet can one sometimes be sure whether they are genuine or "fake".
In the second lecture, Professor Wolfgang Jenewein immerses the children in the world of soccer and asks what is probably the most important question: Who is better, Messi or Ronaldo?
Professor Sabine Seufert picks up on the topic of artificial intelligence from the first lecture and shows that new technologies can open up many opportunities and present many risks as wellsm as well. For example, robots can help us humans in many areas to perform our tasks more precisely, effectively and quickly. And who knows, maybe soon there will be specialized robots to help students with their homework?
At the end of this year's lectures, Professor Nora Markwalder shows why crimes in crime novels and series have always fascinated us and how and why people stray onto the wrong track. Big questions. TikTok or Netflix will have to keep up.
