[Let's talk together] Everyone is talking about diversity. But how does that actually work? In this “Let's talk together” session we will look at how we can better understand the behavior of others and practice looking through a different lens. From individualism/collectivism, to stereotypical thinking and culture shocks, to intercultural communication, we hope for an exciting exchange led by integration companion Annette Schoppmann together with you. No matter what field you come from, sooner or later we all come into contact with other cultures and therefore this topic is suitable for everyone. Did the session pique your curiosity? Then please take part in our first TalkBar this semester.

If you are interested in this topic, the next TalkBar is the right place for you. Ralf Heilmann, consultant & trainer for transformation and digital learning, tells us more about different types of AI and explains the differences between strong and weak AIs. We also get an overview of neural networks and deep learning. The lecture ends with some examples of AI in practice and the whole thing is examined from a cultural and ethical perspective.

[Let's talk together] Are you already learning with the help of artificial intelligence? Or would you like to learn more about and exchange views on how other students use ChatGPT and other AI speech generators for their academic success? In this session (learning with AI) we want to take the time to exchange views on which learning practices of students are already based on artificial intelligence, which generators and AI applications make sense for students, but also where the limits of the new technology lie and what there is to consider when using. Used with finesse, AI can simulate a learning buddy, support you with programming or give you helpful writing impulses. Be there and exchange ideas with other students on the topic!

This TalkBar session will be held in german.
