Science meets Practice – SACM Annual Conference 2023

IMI has been invited to host a series of presentations during the upcoming annual conference of SGKM (the Swiss Association of Communication and Media Research). For this, they are collaborating with C4DT and have chosen the theme of automatic content generation (and detection) and (dis)information dissemination in the digital age, under the working title “Technology or media: who will save quality information?”. The organizers are particularly interested in IMI’s interdisciplinary approach and the practical aspect of their projects. The goal is to present the current state of research in computer science, to show that this theme is a breeding ground for interdisciplinary research (ethics, law, social sciences, etc.) and to inspire new interdisciplinary collaborations.
