Introducing Communicative AI

Prof. Dr. Wiebke Loosen hält im Rahmen des 2023 ADM+S Symposiums Automated News & Media eine Keynote zum Thema "Introducing Communicative AI". Das Symposium findet in an der Universität Sydney statt, eine virtuelle Teilnahme ist möglich. 
Hier geht es zur Anmeldung zum Symposium. Die virtuelle Teilnahme ist kostenfrei. Anmeldeschluss ist der 23. Juni. 

Über die Keynote
The use of AI to automate communication has become an increasingly mainstream activity, largely thanks to the popularity of ChatGPT. People have used the tool for a range of tasks, from editing text to generating code, raising a series of concerns about plagiarism, copyright and general accuracy. In this presentation, Wiebke Loosen argues that these controversies ignore a more foundational transformation, which sees AI actively contributing to communication at a societal level. Working with colleagues in Germany, Wiebke Loosen has started to consider what it means to think about AI as a form of communication, working with and further developing the concept ‘Communicative AI’. In this talk, Wiebke Loosen introduces this concept and illustrates the breadth and depth of this phenomenon through a series of case studies from the journalism sector. She will go on to discuss future research agendas that plan to address AI from this novel perspective, with consideration of some of the implications of understanding particular types of automation as communication.

Über das Symposium
AI and automation are now part of the news and media industries. Digital platforms use automated systems to shape how we find and access information and entertainment, as well as to filter, fact-check and moderate content, and to serve advertising to their users. Newsrooms are producing stories without human intervention and using bots to collect newsworthy data. As these sectors start to seriously grapple with AI, the dominance of major platforms and media organisations  looks far less certain, thanks to a series of economic shocks and a renewed interest in alternative social media technologies. This is a moment of possibility, and one that invites reflection and action. The 2023 ADM+S Symposium brings together researchers, industry, advocacy groups and policymakers to showcase the findings of our work together to date, and to address the most pressing emerging challenges associated with automated systems in the digital media, information, and entertainment environment. 
The two-day symposium will include:
  • Keynotes, panel discussions and conversations with leading international and national researchers, and stakeholders.
  • Dissemination of new findings from the ADM+S Centre’s key research projects
  • Opportunities to connect with others through interactive workshops, social activities and satellite events.
