Science Movie Nights – Of Natural and Artificial Intelligences


In the near future, a lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with an operating system designed to meet every need.
In 2013, this was Science Fiction. But is it still today?

AI-based operating systems and virtual assistants enable human-like linguistic communication and interaction in various areas of our lives. But what happens when virtuality and reality become increasingly intertwined and feelings develop between humans and machines? To explore this topic, we invite you to a screening of the film Her followed by a panel discussion. Data scientist Prof. Alexander Ecker, psychologist Dr. Vanessa Mitschke and philosopher Prof. Catrin Misselhorn will discuss the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence and its ethical challenges. The discussion will be hosted by Prof. Thomas Kneib.

March 5 2024, 7 pm; Lecture Hall of the German Primate Center, Kellnerweg 4.
