Neu am RHET AI Center: Kim Luther

Sin­ce April, Kim Luther has been streng­thening the Event Unit of the RHET AI Cen­ter as a doc­to­ral stu­dent. In her work she deals inten­si­ve­ly with tech­no­lo­gi­cal pro­gress in gene­ral and its pro­ces­sing through lite­ra­tu­re and other cul­tu­ral arte­facts as well as their recep­ti­on in socie­ty. In par­ti­cu­lar, her rese­arch focu­ses on the arti­fi­ci­al human being, its shape and form, tech­ni­cal rea­liza­ti­on, artis­tic repre­sen­ta­ti­on and the accep­tance by socie­ty asso­cia­ted with it.

After com­ple­ting her BA in com­pa­ra­ti­ve lite­ra­tu­re and Ame­ri­can stu­dies and her MA in lite­ra­ry and cul­tu­ral theo­ry at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tübin­gen, Kim Luther was head of the PR depart­ment and key account mana­ger of an IT secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny spe­cia­li­zing in pro­fes­sio­nal hack­ing. The­se expe­ri­en­ces, among other things, prompt­ed her to return to her dis­ser­ta­ti­on pro­ject and thus to sci­ence. In the event unit, she also deals with the ques­ti­on of how a suc­cessful tar­get group approach for arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence can look like.
