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 in 2021 featured Christina Elmer, deputy head of development at the weekly news magazine “Der Spiegel”. You can find the new call for applications here (in German).
Christina Elmer presented her work and research question on June 24 2021 at a public lecture. You can watch the entire event here https://youtu.be/yIOEkwaQdUA.
AI office hours
Once a month, you have the opportunity to meet Cyber Valley researchers and ask your questions about artificial intelligence (AI) at our AI Office Hours. Scientists from various disciplines will provide insights into their research and potential areas of application. The AI office hours are a good way to get first-hand information in a comprehensible way. You don't need to have any prior knowledge about AI.

“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!
