Podium discussion: Do you still write yourself? How AI is changing our education system


On Tuesday, May 28, 2023, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities will host a panel discussion at 6 p.m. with the topic "Are you still writing yourself? How AI is changing our education system", in which Professor Dr. Dr. Eric Hilgendorf will participate.

Admission free, registration requested.

Language models such as ChatGPT or Bard have been dominating the public discussion for weeks and have brought the possibilities, but also the challenges of artificial intelligence (AI) into the focus of attention. The reactions are very different: While some are indignant about the content-related errors of the robot texts, others are enthusiastic about how texts can be generated in a matter of seconds with technical help. In general, it is hardly recognisable at first glance whether a text was written by a machine or a human being. One thing is certain: the digital transformation is unstoppable. Text automation programmes will become better and better and will have an impact on many areas of life, especially on our education system.

How will we teach and learn in the future? How can we use AI constructively and meaningfully in teaching and learning? What prior knowledge and competences does this require from teachers, students and pupils? What are the limits, dangers and challenges of this new technology? Can AI lead to more educational justice? We would like to discuss these and many other questions with our panelists and with you - dear teachers, students, pupils and those interested in AI!
