Business meets Science

Hybrid intelligence and services: New opportunities for innovative collaboration between humans and machines

Two buzzwords are currently on everyone's lips: artificial intelligence (AI) and the idea of the hybrid. Bringing the two together creates new opportunities to complement and extend human capabilities. Through such collaborative intelligence, humans, AI and digital tools mutually reinforce each other's strengths. What comes naturally to humans (e.g., making a joke) may be difficult for machines, and what is easy for machines (e.g., analyzing petabytes of data) is virtually impossible for humans. We need both types of capabilities.

To take full advantage of this collaboration and use it profitably, we need to understand how humans and digital technologies can most effectively complement each other, how AI and digital tools can improve what humans do best.

“IT Business Meets Science” provides an update on the current state and future techniques:

  • How will machines transform collective intelligence?
  • Where can AI complement the tasks of humans, usefully? How can you tell that systems are working well together?
  • How can you redesign business processes to support human-machine collaboration?

Since 2012, Fujitsu and the Chair of Information Systems at TU Darmstadt have jointly organized the “IT-Business meets Science” event.

In keeping with the theme, this year's IT-BMS will be held hybrid In the context of this event, scientists and practitioners will provide insights into current topics. After the presentations, questions from the participants were answered and the participants were able to exchange their opinions via surveys.
