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.
