Interactions With Language-Based AI

Concluding Conference of the Human-Agent Interaction Network


April 11, 2024, 1.00 – 7.30 pm
Location: Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien (IWM), Tübingen





About the concluding conference

After four successful years, we would like to celebrate the completion of our research activities with a concluding conference in Tübingen.

During the last four years, the Human-Agent Interaction Network at the Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien explored human interaction with artificial intelligence processing natural language. Eight interdisciplinary projects were carried out in collaboration with researchers from several universities and institutions, e.g., the Universities of Tübingen and Stuttgart and the German Literature Archive Marbach.


About the program

The conference aims to bring together experts in the field of human-agent interaction from different areas in a poster session, keynote presentations, and a panel discussion.


  • We are excited to welcome Dr. Minha Lee (Eindhoven Technological University) and Prof. Dr. Nils Köbis (Research Center Trustworthy Data Science and Security) as keynote speakers.
  • A panel discussion with experts on (generative) AI in work, teaching, and everyday life open also for the general public will conclude the conference.
  • The poster session will provide insights into current research on the perception, use, and impact of language-based AI agents and similar technologies.
