The scientific journal KI – KÜNSTLICHE INTELLIGENZ – is the German Journal on Artificial Intelligence, mouthpiece of the department of artificial intelligence in the Gesellschaft fuer Informatik e.V. (GI) with contributions spanning all areas of AI. This journal offers current information and substantiated background knowledge to all relevant aspects of artificial intelligence. These range from the basics and programmatic tools to their implementation and use for scientific purpose to resulting execution in a broader sense. All in all, this journal allows anyone working in the field of AI to gain fast access to current AI topics; it simultaneously provides a platform for an animated, interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.

Since the beginning of 2010 the journal KI is published by Springer.

The discipline Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been firmly established in research and education and is an interdisciplinary part of computer science today. AI deals with the construction of information processing systems that produce “intelligent” results, as well as with the modeling of human cognitive abilities using information processing systems. Research, development, and application in AI work toward one general goal: To develop procedures of receiving and processing information that come closer to the way humans solve problems in order to create methods that advance and enrich conventional computer science systems. Parts of this goal have been reached so far, in particular program systems with a higher abstraction level which lead to new software techniques, the formulation of technical foundations, and better forms of human-machine communication.

The technical journal KI is the mouthpiece for the department of AI GI’s Artifical Intelligence Section of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI).

All areas of AI are represented in contributions in the KI journal. These contributions are organized into several categories and take a variety of forms:

  • Technical papers geared towards implementation or the fundamentals,
  • Research project presentations,
  • Discussions,
  • Summaries of doctoral and postdoc theses,
  • Interviews,
  • Book reviews and conference reports.

In addition, information and announcements from the department and its faculties is also printed. The contents of the papers range from methodical fundamentals and scientific tools of AI to their implementation and use for scientific purpose to resulting execution, carried out using methods of AI.

Every edition of the KI journal is devoted to one special topic. This topic and its numerous facets will be presented by recognized authors. The presentation of one topic in this manner allows readers to gain a detailed overview of a variety of current research topics and implementations in the field of artificial intelligence. In the KI journal, you will papers offering readers up-to-date information and established background knowledge on all relevant aspects of AI.
