Projektinformationen

How does artificial intelligence (AI) affect scientific practices and knowledge production in different disciplines? In order to explore the potentials, limitations, risks and ambivalences of AI-based methods, the interdisciplinary team combines perspectives from computer science, history of science, as well as media studies and media ethnography. Out of more than 100 probed research projects currently using AI based methods in Europe, three were deliberately chosen for further analysis. Specifically, these research projects exemplify changes in three focus disciplines form the humanities (film studies), social sciences (urban sociology), and natural sciences (meteorology). The goal is a better understanding, how AI is changing scientific practices (incl. continuities, discontinuities) and which new knowledge opportunities are emerging. In the course, an AI transcription and summarization tool for text and speech is developed for meta-research on AI.
