Leuphana Graduate School welcomes you to the panel discussion "Research>>AI"!


Artificial intelligence (AI) has recently been playing an increasingly important role in text and image production. For example, it enables students and researchers to create texts at breathtaking speed using AI-powered software.

Since the chatbot ChatGPT became available at no cost, scholars have been discussing how learning, researching, and teaching at universities has already changed and will evolve because of AI.

The focus of the moderated panel discussion Research >> AI at the Opening Days 2023 will be around the debate of AI. We will address the question which skills of students, researchers and lecturers need to be strengthened in order to ensure a fair handling of these tools.

Together with academics from Leuphana University, University of Bergen (Norway) and from the KI Campus of the German “Stifterverband”, we would like to critically pose the question: Artificial Intelligence – Amazing Innovation or Amoral Idea?
