Workshop Announcement "Perspectives on Hybrid Human–AI Systems. Bringing Together Interdisciplinary Approaches"

                Dear all,

We would like to draw your attention to the interdisciplinary workshop 
"Perspectives on Hybrid Human-AI Systems. Bringing Together 
Interdisciplinary Approaches" which will take place from April 10 to 12, 
2024, in Munich, Germany.

The workshop will bring together researchers, experts, and individuals 
interested in hybrid human-AI systems to discuss how different 
disciplines understand and address these hybrid systems, and how these 
individual perspectives can contribute to an interdisciplinary 
understanding of the collaboration between humans and machines. The full 
abstract is available below.

We look forward to presentations from cultural and social anthropology, 
sociology, philosophy and ethics, cognitive science, artificial 
intelligence, computer science, and media informatics by (in 
alphabetical order)

Christoph Bareither (University of Tübingen)
Anne Dippel (University of Jena)
Steven Dorrestijn (Saxion University of Applied Sciences)
Orit Halpern (TU Dresden)
Catholijn Jonker (TU Delft)
Gertraud Koch (University of Hamburg)
Pietro Michelucci (Human Computation Institute)
Rainer Mühlhoff (University of Osnabrück)
Albrecht Schmidt (LMU Munich)
Roanne van Voorst (University of Amsterdam)

The complete program, including the Lightning Talk panels, can be found

Participation is free of charge. Registrations are accepted until *March 
15, 2024*, by email at
Questions can be directed to Libuše Vepřek:

Note: Due to a limited number of places and for sustainability reasons, 
we ask for a binding registration with a 30 Euro deposit, which will be 
refunded after the conference. Our experience has shown that often 
participants register but then do not show up, leading to a significant 
over-preparation of food and other resources that ultimately go to 
waste. With this practice, we aim to avoid this as much as possible. If 
registered guests do not show up, the money will be donated to a social 
or cultural project.

    Perspectives on Hybrid Human-AI Systems. Bringing Together
    Interdisciplinary Approaches

  Johannes Moser,  Libuše Hannah Vepřek, and Leonie Thal

The research fields of /Human Computation/ and /Hybrid Intelligence/ 
investigate how the capabilities of humans and computers can be combined 
in novel ways, thereby overcoming the limitations of today’s strictly 
computational /Artificial Intelligence/ systems, and yielding the 
ability to address problems that neither can solve on their own.
Such hybrid human–AI systems are of interest to several scientific 
disciplines, including computer science, philosophy, sociology, design, 
and cultural anthropology, as they not only enable new computational and 
engineering capabilities while posing interesting new problems on their 
own but also influence societies on a structural level and our everyday 
life at the micro level. They elicit questions on the human–AI relations 
in these hybrid systems that are ethical, judicial, social, cultural, 
logical, algorithmic, practical, and material in nature.
This workshop brings together scholars, experts, and interested parties 
with an interest in hybrid human–AI systems to learn how different 
disciplines understand and approach these systems. The aim is to discuss 
how each discipline can contribute to an interdisciplinary understanding 
of the collaboration of humans and machines in such hybrid systems. With 
this workshop, we want to spark new conversations between different 
disciplines, addressing, among others, the following questions:

  * How does human computation and hybrid intelligence relate to
    pursuits of and discourses on /Artificial General Intelligence/ /
    /Strong AI/?
  * How can we grasp human-technology and societal relations unfolding
    within these systems?
  * How is trust established and (re)negotiated in such systems?
  * What forms of ethics arise in and with hybrid human-AI systems?
  * What are the unique perspectives of the different disciplines, and
    how can these inform one another?
  * How can we arrive at understandings that consider the disciplines’
    different approaches and modes of reasoning?
  * How can we work together on these topics?

The workshop is organized as part of the research project “Playing 
/in the Loop/: New Human-Software Relations in Human Computation Systems 
and their Impacts on the Spheres of Everyday Life” funded by the German 
Research Foundation. The Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the Carl Friedrich 
von Siemens Foundation, and the Münchner Vereinigung für Volkskunde e.V. 
provide additional funding for the workshop.
