RHET AI Center at PCST 2023

The Pub­lic Com­mu­nic­a­tion of Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy Con­fer­ence (PCST 2023) will take place in Rot­ter­dam from 12 to 14 April 2023. The theme of this year's con­fer­ence is "Cre­at­ing com­mon ground". Fol­low this link to the con­fer­ence page.

The RHET AI Cen­ter is offer­ing a pre-con­fer­ence work­shop on "Ground­ing AI com­mu­nic­a­tion: Myths, ima­gin­a­tions, and real­it­ies" on the 11th of April from 14:00 to 16:00. The work­shop will focus on the chal­lenges of sci­ence com­mu­nic­a­tion in the field of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence. The aim of the work­shop is to enable par­ti­cipants to use nar­rat­ives and fic­tions more effect­ively in research and com­mu­nic­a­tion and to avoid poten­tial pit­falls. Cur­rent find­ings from rhet­or­ic, lin­guist­ics and cul­tur­al stud­ies will be included. The work­shop is organ­ised by Markus Gott­schling and Kim Luth­er from the RHET AI Center.

On April 12 from 17:00 to 18:15, the RHET AI Cen­ter will also organ­ize a roundtable on "Between Fact and Fic­tion. The Dif­fi­cult quest for com­mon ground in scicomm on AI." The aim of the dis­cus­sion is to estab­lish a com­mon ground for the pub­lic debate on Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence. Dif­fer­ent per­spect­ives of experts from the fields of com­puter sci­ence, math­em­at­ics, media and cul­tur­al stud­ies will be included. In addi­tion to Olaf Kramer, Annette Leßmöll­mann, Markus Gott­schling from the RHET AI Cen­ter, Beatrice Bonami, Tilman Gocht and Julia Mer­lot will also be part of the roundtable.
