Subject Fields:

More and more humanities disciplines have either a necessary involvement with Artificial Intelligence and machine learning as their subject is changing as new technologies are implemented, or the disciplines can see methodological opportunities arising from AI/ML. 

Robotics, social media, and automated translation are just a few of the subjects where arts and humanities cannot in good faith avoid dealing with ethical issues, understanding of technological development, and cooperating across disciplines and institutional boundaries.

The pace of development is also striking, e.g. automated translation is very different from what it was just five years ago and radically changes the perception of the field. This makes it acute for humanities disciplines to understand the changing conditions for knowledge production, practices in the field, ethical challenges as well as new opportunities that arise. 

This two-day conference is organized around eight open panels that address key subjects in the intersection of humanities and AI. Proposals for further panels are welcome. See descriptions in the menu to the left. Remote participation is possible.
