Artificial intelligence – a game changer in science and research?

Several L3S members have contributed to the current issue of the research magazine of Leibniz Universität Hannover on the topic of Artificial Intelligence in research.

Prof Dr Bodo Rosenhahn, member of the L3S board of directors, gives an overview in his introductory article. Prof Dr Wolfgang Nejdl, director of L3S, looks at the role of AI as a basis for innovation. Nejdl also discusses the new Centre for AI and Causal Methods in Medicine (CAIMed). Medicine is generating huge amounts of data that can be analysed using artificial intelligence to provide more personalised treatment for patients.

L3S members Prof Dr Tim W. Dornis and Prof Dr Magrit Seckelmann, together with their colleagues from the Institute of Legal Informatics, write about “Artificial Intelligence and Law: New Challenges from a Legal Perspective”. Prof Dr Sören Auer, Prof Dr Maria-Esther Vidal, Prof Dr Ralph Ewerth and colleagues look at how artificial intelligence is changing academic work.

Prof Dr Henning Wachsmuth writes about Large Language Models – AI that reaches people, Prof Dr Holger Blume about modern automotive electronics and Prof Dr Stefanie Büchner about fair AI from a sociological perspective.

Dr Daniel Kudenko is one of the authors of the article entitled “Big data of the past. How AI is helping to analyse biodiversity change”. On the face of it, AI and biodiversity are two different topics. In fact, AI can help researchers digitise and analyse data collections.

In this issue of Unimagazin, all faculties of Leibniz University have contributed to the topic of AI – the authors show their expertise in very different fields and report on their use, their experiences and their visions of AI.
