Call for Contribution: Why, AI?

21 Mai 2021

Wir laden Forschende und Fachleute aus Wissenschaft, Industrie und Zivilgesellschaft mit unterschiedlichem Hintergrund ein, an unserem Online-Lernraum “Why, AI?” mitzuarbeiten, um Mythen rund um künstliche Intelligenz zu entlarven.


“AI will kill us all!” or “AI treats everyone equally!” – Everyone talks about AI as it has become one of the defining technologies of our lifetime. But there are a lot of misconceptions and uncertainties people have around it, too. We would like to change this for we believe it to be extremely important to add to an informed public discourse.

Are you eager to support us in this mission? Are you interested in cutting through the noise and fostering the public debate on artificial intelligence? Do you have an AI myth in mind that you would like to deconstruct – once and for all? We invite researchers and professionals from academia, industry and civil society with diverse backgrounds to participate in our 

Why, AI?
Unravelling Myths about Automation, Algorithms, Society and Ourselves

hosted by the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) in the framework of the AI & Society Lab and the Research Group Global Constitutionalism and the Internet.

Explore the learning space

We are bringing together an interdisciplinary team of researchers and speakers around the globe to contribute to an AI myth-busting repository. On a regular basis, a new lecture is being added to that learning space with the goal to further unravel legends about AI and automated decision support systems, data and society. Why, AI? is conceptualised as an open education resource (OER) and all material will be licensed under CC BY.

Will you embark on this important journey and share your idea with us? Then submit your contribution here or get in touch at whyai@hiig.de. We look forward to your myth!

What exactly would you have to contribute?

• a very short abstract (600 characters) and 3-4 punchy keywords on your topic

• 10 slides on your topic (slide deck provided)

• a 25min recorded video lecture (introducing yourself and presenting the slides )

• core readings, bonus material on your topic, and inspiring people & projects

 

Will you embark on this important journey and share your idea with us? 
Then submit your contribution here or get in touch at whyai@hiig.de. We look forward to your myth!


About the project

This online learning space is hosted by the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) in the framework of the AI & Society Lab and the Research Group Global Constitutionalism and the Internet. The AI Lab is a research group that explores new formats and perspectives on AI, functioning as an interdisciplinary space mediating between different stakeholders in society that interact with AI. Its core research agenda revolves around the concept of Public Interest AI. The research group Global Constitutionalism and the Internet explores how power is exercised and curtailed in the digital constellations, which new orders emerge, how they are strengthened, legitimated, criticized and challenged.

European Platform Alternatives

Im Jahr 2020 begann das Platform Alternatives Projekt mit der Erforschung der europäischen Plattformökonomie, um die strukturellen Auswirkungen der großen amerikanischen Plattformen und die Strategien ihrer europäischen Wettbewerber zu verstehen. Das Team fand hier eine äußerst vielfältige und aktive Landschaft digitaler Plattformen vor, in der häufig andere Motivationen als Wachstum und Marktherrschaft im Zentrum stehen. Zwei Jahre später bieten die hier versammelten Beiträge nun eine Alternative zu den aktuellen öffentlichen und politischen Debatten, die sich oft nur um die Fragen der Regulierung großer Plattformen drehen. Neben vielfältigen organisatorischen Lösungen und Regulierungsfragen geht es vor allem die Frage, wie sie europäische Plattformen zu echten Alternativen im globalen Markt entwickeln können.
