Today, artificial intelligence is more than just a buzzword. More and more organizations are investing in the development of corresponding competencies for the creation of new products or even entire business models. In this context, the question of how to perform requirements engineering for an AI-based system is probably an interesting one. However, I find it more exciting to understand how AI can also be used for RE. After all, RE is not an end in itself and any optimization of this discipline in terms of quality and efficiency is most welcome. But what is AI at all? Why does it make sense to use AI technologies for requirements management? And what are the strengths, weaknesses or even risks of such approaches for requirements engineering tasks? Based on my own experiences, observations, and insightful conversations, I will present some thoughts on AI in RE to trigger further discussions.
