English abstract:
In recent years, there have been significant achievements in different areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) which made it to the headlines. After Deep Blue was the first computer program winning against a ruling world champion of chess in 1997, which was a milestone in the history of AI, the Mars Rover missions started in the early 2000s for which intelligent autonomous planning and control is instrumental. The DARPA challenges in 2004 and 2005 have stimulated intensive research on autonomous vehicles, and due to efforts by global players like Apple and Google in cooperation with car industry, encountering such vehicles on the road appears to be realistic in the near future. On an other end, IBM's Watson victory over Jeopardy champions in 2011, and the most recent defeat of top Go players in 2015 and 2016 by Alpha-Go, a computer program by Google's Deep Mind company, are further milestones in the history of AI, which are based on novel use of search and deep learning techniques.
