Science Animated: Explaining Uses of AI in Medicine

Friday, April 21, 2023, 18:15h–19:45h

Kino Arsen­al (Hintere Graben­straße 20, 72070 Tübingen)

Tech­no­lo­gies based on Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence (AI) are start­ing to influ­ence many areas of med­ic­al research and prac­tice. How can these new tech­no­lo­gies be used to ana­lyze med­ic­al images and oth­er data, sup­port the dia­gnos­is and treat­ment of dis­eases, and help in the devel­op­ment of new drugs?

On Fri­day, April 21, the RHET AI Cen­ter presents a spe­cial event at the Kino Arsen­al in Tübin­gen to vividly explore examples of how AI can be used in medi­cine. The event starts at 18:15h – and fea­tures short anim­ated explain­er videos cre­ated by inter­dis­cip­lin­ary teams of stu­dents. This pro­ject is the res­ult of a teach­ing col­lab­or­a­tion between part­ners from the fields of Medi­cine, Rhet­or­ic, Media Sci­ence, and Machine Learn­ing. Accom­pa­ny­ing the short movies, there will also be talks with the stu­dents and experts involved, provid­ing fur­ther insights into the under­ly­ing research as well as the cre­at­ive pro­cess behind the videos. Admis­sion to the event is free.
