Workshop "Artificial Intelligence in Biobanking"


Starts on
Ends on


Event access: Internal

In science, the use of artificial intelligence has already proven to be a useful technology in several fields of application. Artificial intelligence supports a wide variety of processes in society and technology. The topic of "biobanking" also falls at the interface of society and technology. Biobanking is an important pillar of medical research, as biobanks ensure access to tissue and liquid samples. By collecting, processing and storing human biospecimens and making them available for analysis as needed, biobanks can make a relevant contribution to various medical research questions. At the same time, the topic of "biobanking" is an interdisciplinary one, because it is not only about medical issues, but also about ethical, legal and technical ones.

The aim of the workshop of the Artificial Intelligence research group is to bring biobanking and artificial intelligence closer together. Initial approaches in the area of "digital pathology" already exist, but further fields of application are to be identified in order to optimise biobanking with the help of artificial intelligence and in particular to shed light on its further implications. The focus will be on different aspects, such as IT processes, organisational workflows or quality management measures, but above all on higher-level issues of ethical, legal and social significance.

    • Interdisciplinary workshop "language use in science and humanities"

      In this workshop we want to try a little experiment “on our own” and compare scientific texts from different subjects to see how they use language to present scientific results. We are not concerned with an exact linguistic description of individual phenomena, but rather with our spontaneous impressions: How do texts from other disciplines affect us, which stylistic features surprise or irritate us, what seems familiar to us? What linguistic means do the articles use to present their problem/question? What is considered as 'fact' in each case? How is the argumentation made?

    • Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

      Talking about art: For some artists, the linguistic construction of an artistic programme or an artistic position is an inherent part of their work. Others see it as a challenging communicative task to speak and write about their own art in professional contexts or in front of a critical audience. In addition to individual differences, there are also differences specific to art forms and media.

      The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop organised by the Working Group Language is to shed light on the broad field of artistic communication.
