Artificial intelligence (AI) has increasingly found its way into the media and German society since the end of 2022. It is a complex and multifaceted sub-discipline of digitalisation. Its progressive spread in digital systems and processes requires more and more understanding of its versatile potential uses, but also an examination of the opportunities and risks.
“Promoting society also means challenging it.”
Founder of Körber-Stiftung
Our task is to strengthen civil society in Germany for the digital transformation by utilising the potential of artificial intelligence for the common good and considering its impact on the social fabric. People are at the centre of this, because we can only actively shape our digital future by addressing the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence. We want to make the voices of civil society heard in order to utilise the potential of AI for more civic engagement, overcoming social disadvantages and greater social cohesion.
Our work is not limited to having our say: With a structured approach to the various facets of AI, we want to provide suggestions and impetus as to how actors in the third sector can take up its use themselves and apply it for their charitable purposes.
Our aim is for society to help shape the development and use of AI. We are convinced that the third sector needs a strategy for the digital age and that our themed campaign can help to initiate conversations and collaborations. We therefore want to raise awareness of the importance of artificial intelligence and promote collaboration between different stakeholders.
