Cyber Valley on the road
What is artificial intelligence (AI) and what is it exactly that scientists from Stuttgart and Tübingen are researching? How can society participate? And who makes the rules for the use of AI? We address questions like these in our bookable workshop and lecture program Cyber Valley on the road. We are currently developing a series of workshops and lectures that interested citizen groups from the Stuttgart-Tübingen region can book.
Invite our public engagement managers! An overview of our program will follow soon. If you are interested, please send us an e-mail.
AI and journalism: Journalist-in-residence program
During a three- to six-month residency, a science journalist will focus on how AI applications can be used meaningfully for good journalism. The selected journalist is free to choose their topic and question. The pilot program between April and June featured Christina Elmer, deputy head of development at the weekly news magazine “Der Spiegel”.
Christina Elmer presented her work and research question on June 24 at a public lecture. You can watch the entire event here https://youtu.be/yIOEkwaQdUA.
“Direktdurchwahl”: Straight-talk about AI. The Cyber Valley podcast
This new podcast is all about straight-talk: people from the Stuttgart-Tübingen region are invited to say what they think of AI and confront Cyber Valley researchers with their perspectives. Then, interview guests from the scientific community talk about real challenges in AI research rather than presenting unrealistic visions of the future. What can AI do? What are currently the greatest opportunities and risks in research and development?
“Direktdurchwahl” is available on cyber-valley.de/podcast, as well as on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music/Audible, Google Podcasts, and YouTube.
If you have a topic suggestion or would like to be interviewed, please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org!
AI office hours
From now on, you will have the opportunity to meet Cyber Valley researchers once a month and ask questions about AI at the AI office hours. Scientists from various disciplines will provide insights into the state of research and potential areas of application. The AI office hours are a good way to get first-hand information.
The next AI office hours are scheduled for October 18. Find out more about the participants and how to register here.
