Event access: Internal

Members of the RG Artificial Intelligence will meet for an interdisciplinary dialogue on the chances and limits of AI and its applications. Different disciplines bring different perspectives to the table and similar sounding concepts do not necessarily mean the same. Moreover, even if concepts are the same across disciplines, different fields might focus on distinct aspects. The workshop “Interdisciplinary Conversations on the Fairness, Explainability and Uncertainty of AI” tries to bridge these gaps and brings researchers from different disciplines in conversation about these three major concepts of current research on AI.

At the beginning of each of three panels (representing Fairness, Explainability and Uncertainty Quantification), a presentation from the field of computer sciences or statistics will provide a conceptual basis for further interdisciplinary exchange. This presentation will be followed by presentations reflecting current research related to the respective concepts from different disciplines, such as computer sciences, political sciences, sociology, social psychology, or law. Each presentation will take the broad background of the audience that might come with different preconceptions into account. With this set up, the research group hopes to stimulate an engaging interdisciplinary debate across disciplines and applications; and hopes to encourage the dialogue between groups who substantively work on the same topics.

The workshop is organised by Nadja Klein and Pascal Langenbach.

    • Der symmetrische Fehlschluss. Kausale Asymmetrien in Politik und Politikwissenschaft

      Kolloquium „A/Symmetrie — Interdisziplinäre Perspektiven“

      Die praktische Politik versteht kausale Beziehungen häufig als inhärent symmetrisch. Der Vortrag von Lukas Haffert hinterfragt diese einfache Symmetrieannahme und argumentiert, dass viele kausale Beziehungen in der sozialen Welt inhärent asymmetrisch sind. Deshalb sollten die Politik, aber auch die Politikwissenschaft in ihrer Theorie und ihrer Empirie, asymmetrischen Wirkungsbeziehungen mehr Aufmerksamkeit schenken.

    • A conversation analytical approach to A/Symmetries

      Colloquium „A/Symmetry — interdisciplinary Perspectives“

      In Conversation Analysis (CA), various a/symmetries are considered as an inherent part of interaction. In asymmetric interaction, the division of communication labour is uneven and the linguistically more competent participants carry the responsibility of taking the conversation forward. This might be a challenge especially for the more competent language users, who often seek advice on how to deal with the asymmetry. In Finland, guidelines for spoken Easy Language have been developed to support more competent speakers and to raise their language awareness.
