Actuators convert electrical signals into mechanical motion or other physical quantities.
Specification on how to solve a task.
When a human decision maker prefers recommendations from an automated decision-making system to information without automation (even if that information is correct).
Using a driverless transport system with autonomous behaviour.
Bias is a prejudice for or against something or someone that can lead to unfair decisions. It is well known that people are biased in their decision making. Since AI systems are designed by humans bias can arise in many ways in AI systems.
A chatbot is an AI system that can communicate with its user in a natural language.
Industrial robot that works together with people, i.e. in the same workspace.
There are different types of neural networks and machine learning approaches – one is deep learning. This approach refers to the fact that neural networks have multiple layers between input and output that allow the whole input-output relation to be learned in sequential steps.
Unmanned aircraft operated autonomously or controlled from the ground.
External support structure for an organism that can also be used to increase performance with the support of technology.
Robots with human-like shape or characteristics.
Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence. The goal of machine learning is to develop algorithms which can learn and improve over time and can for example be used for predictions.
Some machine learning approaches use algorithms based on the concept of neural networks. Inspired by the human brain, an artificial network of small processing units (comparable to neurons in the brain) with many weighted connections is formed.
Pattern recognition is the ability to recognize regularities, repetitions, similarities or laws in data sets.
An isolated area where actions have no effect on the external environment.
A narrative that depicts scientific and technical speculations on a distant future.
A computer program that is capable of certain (specialised) independent and self-dynamic (autonomous) behaviour.
Includes all practical measures taken by individuals to develop long-term goals, plans and actions.
Scientific platform for experiments and research.
According to the High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence Trustworthy AI has three components: (1) it should be lawful, ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations (2) it should be ethical, demonstrating respect for, and ensure adherence to, ethical principles and values and (3) it should be robust, both from a technical and social perspective, since, even with good intentions, AI systems can cause unintentional harm. Trustworthy AI concerns not only the trustworthiness of the AI system itself but also comprises the trustworthiness of all processes and actors that are part of the system’s life cycle.
