Science Movie Nights – Of Natural and Artificial Intelligences

HER

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.

About the film:

In Spike Jonze’s award winning movie Her, Academy Award Winner Joaquin Phoenix stars as the introverted and lonely Theodore, who writes personal and empathetic letters for other people professionally. In the final stages of his divorce, he purchases the world’s first artificially intelligent operating system. Theodore quickly finds himself drawn in with Samantha, the voice behind his new virtual assistant (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). As they start spending time together, they grow closer and closer and eventually find themselves in love. Samantha helps Theodore in ways others hadn't, but how does she help him deal with his inner conflict of being in love with an operating system? The film received more than 30 awards, among them an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for the best screenplay.

The film is shown in English with German subtitles. Entrance is free.

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

Science Movie Nights – Of Natural and Artificial Intelligences

Krähen - Die Natur beobachtet uns

They are deified, persecuted and chased away. Corvids are the only animals that have observed and studied us humans for thousands of years, but also have the ability to pass on this accumulated knowledge to their offspring. They are extremely clever and are said to have a very extensive memory. Corvids are also known as "feathered apes". But how clever are these birds really? And what are the differences and similarities between corvids and primates? And what do the crows know about us in return? "Is there a collective knowledge about humans in the flocks of crows?", is the central question of this documentary film by Martin Schilt.

Following the screening on Thursday, February 8, 2024, we invite the audience to discuss all these questions with primate researcher Dr. Claudia Fichtel from the German Primate Center in Göttingen and corvid expert Dr. Claudia Wascher from Anglia Ruskin University (England).

The film is narrated in German, but most interviews with researchers in film are in English with German subtitles. Tickets can be purchased via the website of the Lumière.

ZDF science show on the secrets of emergence

Viola Priesemann talks about complex systems and emergence

The enigma of emergence - surprisingly complex properties that can be found in nature, in society and increasingly also in technology. For example, ants that act collectively without central control, or nerve cells that together could form human consciousness.

In the 12.10.23 edition of the ZDF science program Scobel, experts deal with the topic: "Emergence: The hidden principle of life". They shed light on the interaction of simple, small particles to form large, complex patterns as well as the emergence of global social and cultural phenomena.

Professor Viola Priesemann, physicist at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization and the University of Göttingen as well as a member of CIDAS, is one of the invited experts. She will contribute her knowledge of the theory of neural systems and discuss, among other things, the importance of emergence for learning in neural networks.

Seminar by Dr. Saif M. Mohammad “The Search for Emotions, Creativity, and Fairness in Language”

Abstract: Emotions are central to human experience, creativity, and behavior. They are crucial for organizing meaning and reasoning about the world we live in. They are ubiquitous and everyday, yet complex and nuanced. In this talk, I will describe our work on the search for emotions in language -- by humans (through data annotation projects) and by machines (in automatic emotion and sentiment analysis systems). I will outline ways in which emotions can be represented, challenges in obtaining reliable annotations, and approaches that lead to high-quality annotations and useful sentiment analysis systems. I will discuss wide-ranging applications of emotion detection in natural language processing, psychology, social sciences, digital humanities, and computational creativity. Finally, I will discuss various ethical considerations involved in emotion recognition and sentiment analysis — the often unsaid assumptions and implications of our choices.

Date: December 14th, 2022, start is 3 p.m. (lecture ca. 45 min followed by 15 min for QA)

Ausschreibung einer Stelle für wissenschaftliche Hilfskräfte (d/m/w) “Machine learning for lung protective ventilation”

Application Deadline: Tuesday, November 15th, 2022

Job description:
Mechanical ventilation is the most important supportive and life-sustaining measure for severe acute respiratory failure in patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). Conservative estimates suggest that about 150.000 patients per year suffer from ARDS in Europe alone. Ensuring pulmonary gas exchange buys time to treat the underlying cause of the disease. The COVID-19 pandemic led to a massive increase in ARDS cases worldwide and has highlighted the possibilities, but also the limitations and problems associated with mechanical ventilation. The concept of lung protective ventilation aims at preventing injurious side effects while enhancing protection by monitoring several variables that captured during mechanical ventilation such as the tidal volume, the peak airway pressure or positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). However, current therapeutic approaches, often only addressing a few variables, do not sufficiently account for treatment corridors to be specified for the setting of mechanical ventilation and thus fail to adapt to personalized mechanical ventilation for the individual patient.
