The objective of the event is to explore the functions of AI and its relationship to humans. The workshop pays attention particularly to the analogies which characterize intelligent systems design and to the mental processes they give rise to. Leaning on ethnographic case studies, it tries to show that intelligent systems are devices of a recursive kind which convey norms, representations and various ideas about the life processes and the social relations they intend to imitate. As part of the workshop, Jobst Landgrebe (Founder Cognotekt Köln) gives a talk on “Certifiable ‘Artificial Intelligence’ for Reliable Systems” within the c:o/re Lecture Series “Cultures of Research – Digitalization of Research“.
Confirmed speakers are: Jobst Landgrebe (Cognotekt Köln), Markus Pantsar (University of Helsinki, c:o/re), Frederik Stjernfelt (Aalborg University Copenhagen, c:o/re), Joffrey Becker (Laboratoire d‘Anthropologie Sociale, c:o/re), Daniel Wenz (CSS Lab RWTH Aachen), and Andreas Kaminski (High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart).
