"Society and Artificial Intelligence - HAW as a bridge"
18.04.2023, Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences
The conference of HAWtech, the alliance of six universities of applied sciences (HAW) leading in the field of engineering, is dedicated to interdisciplinarity and the interaction between artificial intelligence and society.
Different perspectives help to understand future challenges and find solutions: The event will highlight the "Pathways of Artificial Intelligence into Society" in a high-profile panel discussion. In addition to the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Mario Brandenburg, Ministerial Director Dr. Hans J. Reiter, Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg, will also be taking part in the discussion. The discussion round will be moderated by science journalist Dr Jan-Martin Wiarda.
In the subsequent pitch round, university representatives will present impressive projects from the field of AI, leading on to the viewing of various exhibits and live demonstrations from research and transfer projects of the HAWtech universities.
In the afternoon, exciting workshops will round off the day: Two workshops, for example, will deal with the use of ChatGPT in teaching, examinations and in future curriculum development. Closely related to this is the workshop on research-based teaching and learning, especially in the area of undergraduate studies. Career opportunities at universities of applied sciences and the promotion of women in STEM professions are the topics of further workshops, which are organised by the staff of the BMBF projects FH-Personal and FEMTEC. The conference will conclude with a discussion of future possibilities for intensifying the transfer of knowledge from science to industry through the German Agency for Transfer and Innovation (DATI).
Directions/site plan: The conference will take place at the Campus HKA2030+ at TechnologiePark Karlsruhe (Wilhelm-Schickard-Straße 9, 76131 Karlsruhe). You can find a map of the location and how to get there here
