Living Lab Lecture Series

Voice assistants, cloud services and smart applications: The future technologies of artificial intelligence are playing an increasingly important role in many areas of society, including research. In our interdisciplinary online lecture series, current issues are examined from different perspectives. The lecture series starts with the topic "Ethics and Moral Code in Artificial Intelligence" and deals with transparency, privacy, and data protection in AI systems. Further lectures by researchers from the Competence Center on Big Data, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Modeling Human-Environment Relationships will follow every first Thursday of the month. The events will take place as part of the newly emerging Living Labs in Dresden and Leipzig. Meeting and experimentation sites will be set up at both locations, which will also approach the topics in a variety of practical ways. The aim of the Living Labs is to use demonstrators and interactive demonstrations to show how Big Data analytics, machine learning algorithms, and AI systems are used in our everyday lives. The interdisciplinary lecture series, which can be attended free of charge and without registration, offers an initial discussion platform for this purpose.
