The ongoing AI revolution will far exceed the impact of any previous Grand Transformations regarding both its depth, speed, breadth, and magnitude. The currently blurred outlines necessitate an interdisciplinary approach as well as a cross-sector and cross-industry scope, to assess the ongoing shift both in the context of the present state, the near future, and the long run. In this lecture, we will try to solidify our AI definition framework, analyze the most relevant AI-influenced socio-economic as well as ethical trends and scrutinize trendsetting examples from the global "AI backstage.
