KI4ALL - Access to Artificial Intelligence for All
Artificial intelligence is considered one of the key technologies of the future. Therefore, the topic of artificial intelligence should also be increasingly established in teaching and further education at universities and colleges. To this end, TU Braunschweig is working on a joint project with TU Clausthal and Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences to develop digital teaching programmes. The project is being funded for four years as part of the federal and state funding initiative “KI in der Hochschulbildung” [Artificial Intelligence in Higher Education].
How Should AI be Integrated into Teaching
This is where the joint project "KI4ALL" comes in. "First we will carry out an inventory analysis and create a cross-location AI course catalogue. The term AI is very broad and includes various methods that are used in different contexts. This diversity of disciplines has also motivated our research proposal: On the one hand, we want to work together to create basic offerings on the topic of AI literacy to fit all target groups for the topic. On the other hand, the individual locations have different subject focuses on research, whose future viability we want to strengthen by integrating subject-specific AI methods into teaching and further education," says Junior Professor Henning Wessels, Professor of Data-driven Modelling of Mechanical Systems, about the approach to the research project.
