Our Program for Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften Dresden 2023

Andreas-Pfitzmann-Bau (APB)

Living Lab – An eye on AI: How and why?

Image recognition, language understanding, data analysis and much more: Artificial intelligences accompany us in many areas of everyday life. But what can AI really do? This question was answered by ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig in the Living Lab (APB-1020). Here, the scientists used a wide variety of demonstrators to show what cutting-edge AI research at TU Dresden looks like.

Midissage: Chocolate Robots and Deepfakes

The midissage of the exhibition „Chocolate Robots and Deepfakes“ took place at 5:00 p.m. More information on the comic Chocolate Robots and Deepfakes is available on our website. Exciting inputs were given from ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig initiator Prof. Dr. Wolfgang E. Nagel and Prof. Dr. Nadine Bergner, Chair for Didactics of Computer Science, Principal Investigator in ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig and co-organizer of the exhibition in Dresden.

At 6:30 p.m., visitors had the opportunity to take part in a guided tour through the exhibition together with Kristina Laube. She is both co-author of the comic and a science communicator.

Afterwards, there was a lecture on How AI is changing social communication – research from the Schaufler Lab@TU Dresden by Prof. Dr. Lutz Hagen, communication scientist and speaker of the Schaufler Lab@TU Dresden. In the Schaufler Lab@TU Dresden, scientists and artists deal with interactions between technology, art and science. The lecture introduced the Lab and discussed relevant research taking the example of the consequences of AI for public communication.

COSMO Wissenschaftsforum

At COSMO Wissenschaftsforum, we introduced visitors to asanAI. With asanAI, you can train an artificial intelligence without any prior knowledge with your own images or even webcam data, but you can also use CSV files or any tensor data. With a mouse click, you can easily add layers to the AI model, remove them or change their settings. You don’t have to install asanAI – because it’s a website that runs in your browser of choice. You can also use asanAI on your smartphone!

ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig is always happy to participate in Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften in Dresden or Leipzig. We are looking forward to next year, where we will hopyfully be able to host many visitors again!
