PhD Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning research and Democracy

29. - 31. January at the University of Tübingen

As the use of Machine Learning algorithms and Artificial Intelligence pervades all areas of our lives and societies, it also affects fundamental pillars of democracy, such as public debate, political decision making and (dis)information through media. In our PhD workshop entitled “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning research and democracy – an interdisciplinary perspective” we will provide a platform for young researchers from all relevant disciplines – from dedicated machine learning research to political science and every nuance in between – to engage in exchange of methods and current state of the art research. Our guiding question will be:

How to apply:

Want to be part of a new network of young researchers who take responsibility for the future of AI and democracy? Are you working on the workshop’s topic – or see an interesting connection of your research to it? Or are you eager to find out how your research might contribute to a positive co-development of AI/ML research and democracy?

Then apply with a short abstract (approx. 200 words) presenting your research and its connection to the workshop’s subjects. Furthermore, we ask for a short personal motivational letter (approx. 100 words) for attending the workshop. Your contribution can take various formats, such as a talk or a hands-on methods session.
