Cooperation with the Science Year 2019 - Artificial Intelligence

As part of the Science Year 2019 – Artificial Intelligence, the special series "Automatic Writing 2.0" is dedicated to various facets of the current technological revolution. Based on texts written especially for the festival, international guests will exchange ideas on current and future AI applications - from everyday implementations to transhumanist visions. A focus will also be on changing the structure of writing, speech and narrative through machine translation, story generator algorithms and voice synthesis. In addition to the readings, panel discussions will address the interactions between the history of ideas and technology as well as the nuances of an increasingly complex human-machine interaction. The lecture and debate program will be supplemented by workshops in the section "International Children's and Young Adult Literature".
