Artificial Intelligence and its implications for society and human self-understanding are one of the key topics of contemporary academic and public discourse. While there are various research institutions dedicated to AI ethics and policy in particular, what still seems to be missing from the picture is an integrated humanities perspective that combines expertise from the history, philosophy and social studies of AI.
The international and interdisciplinary lecture series »Thinking Machines: History, Present and Future of Artificial Intelligence« provides one step towards such an integrated perspective.
The series will be jointly hosted by
- the Research Institute for the History of Science and Technology, Deutsches Museum, Munich, as part of their traditional »Montagskolloquium«;
- the European New School of Digital Research, European University Viadrina,
- and the Philosophy of Computing group, ICFO, Warsaw University of Technology.
The lectures are intended for a general educated audience but are designed to be relevant for academic audiences, too. The title of each event indicates its working language.
