Weizenbaum Conference: AI, Big Data, Social Media, and People on the Move

Die Konferenz erforscht die Überschneidung von künstlicher Intelligenz (KI), Big Data und den Erfahrungen von "Menschen in Bewegung". Dazu gehören Einzelpersonen und Gruppen, die freiwillig oder unfreiwillig ihr Leben und ihre soziale Position verändern. Die Diskussionen decken verschiedene Aspekte ab, wie die Rolle von KI in der Migration und Arbeitsmobilität, die algorithmische Nutzung von Standortdaten und die Narrative rund um Menschen in Bewegung.

The Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society is organizing its Fifth Annual Conference on the subject of ‘AI, Big Data, Social Media, and People on the Move’ and invites interested scholars to submit papers and abstracts for presentations. The conference will take place at Silent Green Kulturquartier in Berlin from 19 to 20 June 2023.

The conference focuses on topics that arise from artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data deployed on and used by ‘people on the move’. We understand the term ‘people on the move’ in a broad sense: individuals and groups who – by volition or necessity – are changing their lives and/or their structural position in societies. This encompasses the role of automated systems or AI in different forms of geographical and social change, including migration and labour mobility, algorithmic uses of ̒ location’, as well as discourses of and about people on the move.
