Hand on heart: Who has not used ChatGPT or similar programmes for writing press releases or image texts? In this workshop, we want to discuss the use of artificial intelligence in everyday work. Bring in your own experiences and we will cluster and assess them.
We will also discuss how AI is changing our work and what new possibilities it opens up for us.
Moreover, we will talk about the competences that the new tools demand from us and about the methodological, legal and ethical framework conditions that we should deal with as professionals.
