Due to an illness of media philosopher Mercedes Bunz this talk will take place later in the year.
The culture of Artificial Intelligence in Digital technology has entered its next phase, at least if we believe the hype: Artificial Intelligence has made progress in the areas of language processing and image recognition known to most of us through readily polite digital assistants such as Apple's Siri or Amazon's Alexa. Thanks to new developments such as machine learning, technology has entered an area that was before 'human-only'. But has technology really started to enter the sphere of meaning or do we just face the usual exaggerations that accompany all new technology?
The Faculty of Humanity and Arts has invited media philosopher Mercedes Bunz to a public talk with our students Anna Schöppe and Nick Blazejak. Dr Bunz is Senior Lecturer at the University of Westminster. Her field of expertise is in technology, digital media, and in the transformation of knowledge and in philosophy of technology.
This event is part of the public lecture series "Applied Cultural Reflection". The Faculty of Humanity and Arts uses this lecture series to discuss publicly its research programme focusing on the notion of cultural reflection, a historical, media comparative and critical reflection of culture as the way of life a society is constantly developing, testing and negotiating. The lecture series invites distinctive speakers to present their positions on different applied culture theories and to discuss intellectual and academic productivity.
