Artificial intelligence (AI) is a trend that is currently leading to controversial discussions. On the one hand, it is a hyped technology with great potential to change the way people live and work.On the other hand, humans fear the possible consequences of misguided superintelligence based on the example of well-known movies. There are also numerous prominent scientists and technology pioneers who have very different opinions on this topic. In order to contribute to that discussion, this paper presents the drivers, advantages, disadvantages and challenges for the use of AI applications based on a literature search. In addition, historical developments, common definitions, types and functionalities of AI are described.
