Many of those following the current media discourse are left with a sense of alarmism: The message seems to be that advances being made in the development of artificial intelligence could cause the systems to spiral out of control. At the same time, experts are voicing concern about the potential influence of these technologies on the stability of democracies, given that images can be manipulated in a matter of seconds. We asked Wolfgang Faber, professor at the Department of Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity, for his take on the new AI tools and the state of research.

Production plants are highly complex systems. Identifying the optimal sequence of machines and production steps not only saves a lot of money, but also contributes to energy and resource efficiency. Using Infineon Technologies Austria AG as an example, researchers at Lakeside Labs GmbH and the University of Klagenfurt are developing new algorithms to improve the efficiency of factories.
Alice Tarzariol was born in Veneto, attended the university in Udine for her Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes and then joined the University of Klagenfurt to pursue her doctoral studies. Her work on logic is attracting international attention, as illustrated by her recent success at the International Conference on Logic Programming, where she won the Best Student Paper Award. We spoke to her about her path to Computer Science.
The future of road transport lies in getting from A to B free of stress. Technology allows us to avoid congestion and respond to accidents and roadworks in a flexible way. Artificial intelligence based on logic systems steers traffic control systems, production plants or rail logistics of this kind. Researchers working on a project together with Siemens AG Austria have developed new approaches that allow a rapid response to new situations.
