AI in Science: Foundations and Applications

Tagung unter Leitung von Stephan Hartmann (MCMP/LMU), Huw Price (Cambridge/Bonn), Timo Freiesleben (MCMP/LMU and GSN/LMU) und Tom Sterkenburg (MCMP/LMU)

09.06.2022 – 10.06.2022

Artificial intelligence (AI) is all the rage these days, promising many new innovations that will make our lives easier. It is also significantly changing the way we do science, raising several fundamental and methodological questions, such as the role of bias, explainability, and the limits of empirical methods. Addressing these questions requires an interdisciplinary effort to which various sciences, from computer science to social science to philosophy, can contribute. This workshop brings together relevant researchers from Cambridge and LMU Munich to engage in the relevant discussions.

It is part of the project "Decision Theory and the Future of AI", funded by the Cambridge-LMU Strategic Partnership Initiative and takes place in the context of the CAS Research Focus "Next Generation AI".

Speakers include: Timo Freiesleben (LMU), Gitta Kutyniok (LMU), Frauke Kreuter (LMU), Jacob Stegenga (Cambridge), Tom Sterkenburg (LMU), and Apolline Taillandier (Cambridge).
