Title: Where are the humanities in AI research? – a research agenda

Abstract.

The talk will try to ask the question where the humanities are in AI research. I will follow their historical position but mainly focus on their contemporary relevance with specific research questions and interests targeting developments in digital culture and society. The digital devices we develop need to focus on the critical study of society. This includes algorithmic criticism but also the study of platformisation through critical hacking, to name but a few.
