Recent advances in the field of artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way with which we think and act. They give an idea of the fundamental changes that will affect our society in the coming years. The interdisciplinary symposium »Encoding Cultures. Living Amongst Intelligent Machines« brought scientists, programmers and developers, cultural theorists and artists into dialogue with a broader public. The lectures and discussions provide insight into the latest state of research and development in the field of machine learning and ask about the current and long-term effects of this technology on science, business, politics, art and society.

Marc Mengler is the CEO and Co-Founder of understand.ai based in Karlsruhe, Germany. understand.ai, with a team of 25 highly specialized computer scientists, provides training and validation data for autonomous driving using advanced algorithms that drastically improve annotation quality. Marc holds an advanced degree in data science and machine learning, for which he specialized in making neuronal networks more robust towards input complexities. As well, Marc holds an advanced degree in entrepreneurship and SME management. On a personal level, Marc has been honored to have played chess against three world champions.
