IWM-Conference: Interactions With Language-Based AI — Poster Session with Anna Köhler and Salina Weber

On April 11, 2024, the con­clud­ing con­fer­ence of the Human-Agent Inter­ac­tion Net­work will take place at the Leib­n­iz-Insti­tut für Wis­sensmedi­en (IWM) in Tübin­gen. Over the past four years, the net­work has been research­ing human inter­ac­tions with arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, par­tic­u­larly in the field of nat­ur­al lan­guage pro­cessing. This has res­ul­ted in eight inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research pro­jects in which the IWM cooper­ates with research­ers from vari­ous insti­tu­tions, such as the Uni­ver­sity of Tübin­gen and the Ger­man Lit­er­at­ure Archive.

The con­fer­ence is entitled: "Inter­ac­tions with Lan­guage-Based AI." In addi­tion to key­note speeches by Dr. Minha Lee (Eind­hoven Tech­no­lo­gic­al Uni­ver­sity) and Prof. Dr. Nils Köbis (Research Cen­ter Trust­worthy Data Sci­ence and Secur­ity) and a pan­el dis­cus­sion, there will also be a poster ses­sion with the par­ti­cip­a­tion of the RhetAI Center.

Anna Köhler and Salina Weber will present a poster on the top­ic: "Per­suas­ive Algorithms — A Ques­tion of Eth­os?" at the con­fer­ence. In terms of con­tent, the poster takes a rhet­or­ic­al look at the inter­ac­tions of users with chat­bots or gen­er­at­ive AIs. The poster focuses mainly on two ques­tions:  How users can learn a decidedly rhet­or­ic­al AI com­pet­ence and what role the rhet­or­ic­al dimen­sion of eth­os plays for gen­er­at­ive AIs and their per­suas­ive power? With this approach, Anna Köhler and Salina Weber build an excit­ing the­or­et­ic­al frame­work with­in which rel­ev­ant ques­tions of user inter­ac­tions with gen­er­at­ive AIs can be negotiated.

The poster ses­sion will be held in Eng­lish at the IWM from 14:15. Fur­ther inform­a­tion on the con­fer­ence can be found here.
