This course uses qualitative and quantitative data analysis to investigate how the topic of artificial intelligence is presented in public discourse. The guiding perspective will be a view from within the discipline of artificial intelligence. Especially the advent of ChatGPT in 2022 led to an explosion in public discourse on AI in various fields. In the seminar, small groups will analyze individual discourses on selected subtopics and will try to chart and summarize ongoing discussions and identify major topics and general directions in public discourse. The seminar aims to create an edited volume of the groups' studies as a continuation of the book from the 2020/2021 seminar. Groups will not only write their chapters but will also review other groups' works.
