Generative AI for all? To conclude our global discourse series "One Topic, One Loop", Enkelejda Kasneci, Professor of Human-Centered Technologies for Learning at the TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology, reflects on the key findings from all the contributions.
Fresh impetus for data science
TUM opens Munich Data Science Institute
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is celebrating the official launch of the Munich Data Science Institute (MDSI). As a central element of TUM AGENDA 2030, it is funded under the Excellence Initiative of the German government and the federal states. The MDSI pools the strengths of TUM in data sciences, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), from basic research to interdisciplinary applications. It will also teach data skills to master’s students, researchers and professionals.
Pilot project to dovetail digital and analog elements
Strategies for a new normal in teaching
Corona has created a new reality in university teaching: Digital, analog and hybrid formats are to be combined in a way that ideally promotes teaching and learning success. To support this, the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and the Arts has launched the “NewNormal” program. TUM is one of the four pilot universities. In this interview, Professor Karsten Stahl and Rudolf Motzet from the Chair of Machine Elements and Dr. Alexandra Strasser from ProLehre | Media and Didactics explain their project of developing a competence- and demand-optimized teaching strategy.
One Topic, One Loop: Jerry John Kponyo
Inclusivity and responsible AI
In the third part of our global discourse series "One Topic, One Loop", Prof. Jerry John Kponyo from Kwame Nkrumah' University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Ghana explores the concept of responsible AI. He emphasizes the importance of ethical, transparent, and inclusive approaches, describes how Afrocentric datasets are generated at KNUST's Responsible AI Lab, and ends with a question for Prof. Sune Lehmann Jørgensen of the Technical University of Denmark.
Global discourse series "One Topic, One Loop": Enkelejda Kasneci
Generative AI for all?
Four countries, four universities, four perspectives: In the global discourse series "One Topic, One Loop", four professors discuss a current topic in research and teaching. Prof. Dr. Enkelejda Kasneci, Head of the Chair for Human-Centered Technologies for Learning at the TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology, begins the discussion. How will research and teaching change under the influence of artificial intelligence - and what comes next?
Research, continuing education and entrepreneurship
New center for digital education technologies
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) works for stronger research, continuing education and spin-offs relating to education technologies. At the new TUM Center for Educational Technologies interdisciplinary research teams will investigate the effectiveness of digital tools for learning and teaching and will develop new applications. The center will put this into practice using continuing education programs and by supporting start-ups.
Environmental Lecture Series of TUM's Student Coucil provides impulses for transformation
Paths to a sustainability university
To counter the climate crisis, fundamental societal change is just as indispensable as groundbreaking technological innovation. Universities, as places of research and transfer, have an outstanding role to play in this. On May 31, in a fishbowl format entitled “The Role of Universities in the Climate Crisis and Climate Policy,” members of TUM discussed how this role can be shaped. The event is part of the Environmental Lecture Series organized by the Environmental Department of TUM‘s Student Council in the summer semester 2023.
Outstanding teachers honored
Claudia Eckert and Friederike Schmidt-Graf were awarded the Prize for Excellence in Teaching
Every year, the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts awards the Prize for Excellence in Teaching to outstanding teachers at universities in the state. The prize, which is endowed with 5,000 euros, recognizes lecturers who are nominated by their home university together with the students on the basis of their special commitment to teaching. Today, it was awarded to 15 university lecturers – including TUM’s Prof. Dr. Claudia Eckert and PD Dr. Friederike Schmidt-Graf.
Munich Data Science Institute
Machine Learning for everyone
Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence now share a joint home at TUM: The Munich Data Science Institute, a research center and service facility for scientific projects. The Institute also trains the data scientists of tomorrow.
Clara Buchholz from the she.codes university group
A question of promoting talent
When children develop their professional interests, the social environment is extremely formative. Girls often still lack female role models in the field of computer science. The university group she.codes wants to change that and get girls excited about programming.
