        Subject: Thinking Machines. History, Present and Future of AI Online lecture series on artificial intelligence, summer 2021 Martin Schmitt

I just shortly wanted to draw your attention on a series off online
lectures on the history of artificial intelligence organized by the
Research Institute for the History of Science and
Technology, Deutsches Museum, as part of their traditional
»Montagskolloquium«, the European New School of Digital Studies, EUV,
Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS), TUM, and the Philosophy
of Computing group, ICFO, Warsaw University of Technology.

"Thinking Machines. History, Present and Future of AI
Online lecture series on artificial intelligence, summer 2021“

„Artificial Intelligence and its implications for society and human
self-understanding are one of the key topics of contemporary academic
and public discourse. While there are various research institutions
dedicated to AI ethics and policy in particular, what still seems to be
missing from the picture is an integrated humanities perspective that
combines expertise from the history, philosophy and social studies of AI.

The international and interdisciplinary lecture series »Thinking
Machines: History, Present and Future of Artificial Intelligence«
provides one step towards such an integrated perspective. The lectures
in this series are intended for a general educated audience but are
disigned to be relevant for academic audiences, too. The title of each
event indicates its working language.“

Most of the talks will be held in English, only one or two talks are in
German. I thought this series could be of interest for some of the
members here on the list.

Stay healthy!
