ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe

The ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe is a future laboratory for art and society in the digital age. Here you can experience art in all its forms and take an active part in future developments.
Exhibitions on specific themes explore the spatial arts, such as painting, photography, and sculpture; however, the main focus is on the time-based arts: film, video, media art, music, dance, theater, and performance. But the ZKM does not confine itself to presenting works of art; from its very inception it saw its mission as creating innovative and favorable conditions for art to be created. At the ZKM’s Hertz-Lab guest artists, scholars, and scientists from all over the world research, develop, and produce works on artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and much more besides. It is this interaction between research and production, between exhibitions and performances, that sets the ZKM apart from other cultural institutions—it is more than a museum, it is a center and a future lab.

intelligent.museum is a practice-based research and development project at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and the Deutsches Museum Nuernberg, with the aim of connecting the museum with current AI technologies, making it a place of experience and experimentation, a social space where art, science, technology and public discourse come together. The project intelligent.museum is funded by the Digital Culture Programme of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) and funded by the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien (Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media).



Founded in 2005, the Institute for Media and Communications Policy (IfM) is a non-profit research and consulting institution devoted to the theoretical and empirical foundation of media and communication policy. With its conferences and workshops it also serves as a forum for the media industry, academia and political decision-makers.

"Workshop on Non-Binary Language Towards Non-Binary Language Technology (GenderFairMT)”

Project Description:
With an increased visibility of non-binary people, strategies to overcome gender bias in language beyond a binary conception (male/female) have been proposed, such as gender-inclusive (e.g. Leser*innen) and/or gender-neutral (e.g. Lesens) language. These developments raise interesting questions for language technologies, including machine translation.Researchers from the University of Vienna, TU Wien, University of Applied Sciences Campus Wien and St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences jointly organized a three-day workshop and panel discussion on non-binary language as a first step towards non-binary language technology. We invited people from the non-binary and queer community, professional translators, and experts of language technologies to discuss different strategies for gender-fair German. The objective of this project is to gather opinions and preferences for strategies to achieve gender-fair (machine) translation and provide recommendations for professional translators, language technology developers, and society for gender-fair language as a final outcome.


Cultural AI Lab

The Cultural AI Lab is a collaboration between KNAW Humanities Cluster, Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, KB National Library of the Netherlands, Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, Rijksmuseum, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, University of Amsterdam and TNO. The lab accelerates excellent research on the intersection of humanities and artificial intelligence. Research areas have an equal focus on “humanities to improve AI research” as well as “AI to improve humanities research”. The SociAl BIas Observatory (SABIO) project is aimed at investigating bias in the digital collections. It is funded by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network.

Antirasistiska akademin

Antirasistiska akademin (Antiracist Academy, ArA) is a Swedish non-profit organisation whose aim it is to combat racism in the scientific community and in all activities of universities, colleges and research institutions. With this focus, the organisation's work will result in participation in the broad anti-racist work that is going on throughout society. The organisation has published an “antiracist dictionary” freely available on the internet:

Human intelligence is based on language and cognition. Intelligent interaction with machines and human-like reasoning require language processing. Language and speech technology as well as cognitive science provide the essential models for proper language understanding and generation at the core of AI.
The purpose of the special interest group on Language, Speech and Cognition (FCAI-SIG-LSC) is to build a platform for discussing advances in natural language processing in relation to human cognition and the development of artificial intelligence.

Life trajectories of wealth, health and well-being diverge. Multiculturalism and migration complicate civic life and solidarity. Neighborhoods become segregated. Digitalization and datafication open new opportunities but also intensify polarization. Making sense of social inequality is a constitutive task of social sciences and humanities. INEQ – Helsinki Inequality Initiative is a strategic, multidisciplinary research initiative of the University of Helsinki. This initiative brings together academics whose work enhances an in-depth understanding of causes and consequences of intersecting inequalities. INEQ is shaped by three interrelated themes: recognition, representation, responses.
