2019-05-13 | State funds research on "Society and the digital change" with 2.1 million Euros
Scientists from Tübingen are involved in a new research association. The new scientific consortium called digilog@bw will conduct interdisciplinary research on the influence of digitization on individuals and society. The Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien (IWM) and the University of Tübingen are taking part in the consortium with four projects: At the IWM, Prof. Dr. Sonja Utz and her junior research group Social Media investigate how AI-supported language assistants affect information search and evaluation and what role media literacy plays in this. The International Center for Ethics in the Sciences and Humanities (IZEW) is concerned with the effects of artificial intelligence on public communication and investigates the influence of cloud-computing on digital sovereignty as well as fair participation conditions in a diverse society.
