We, the Institute of AI in Management at LMU Munich, are excited about AI in management and the dynamic developments in this field. That is why we would like to provide first-hand insights into the latest research work, granted by high profile scientists from all over the world. We are very honoured to be able to win great guest speakers for the keynotes every semester.

All session will be available via Zoom for everyone who is interested. We aim to provide an overview of current trends in AI research. The sessions, on Thursdays, consist of 45-60 minutes of presentation, followed by discussion, feedback and QA. We are looking forward to seeing you there.

All information on dates, times, speakers and their topics, incl. Zoom links will be published on this event page when we get closer to the dates.

Guest Speaker: Prof. Qian Yang, Cornell University

Präsentation: Innovating AI Products for Social Good in the Age of Foundational Models

Abstract: Accounting for AI's unintended consequences—whether misinformation on social media or issues of fairness and social justice—-increasingly requires AI systems designers to go beyond immediate user experiences of the system and consider human-AI interactions at a societal scale. The increasing ubiquity of large pre-trained language models (LLMs) further exacerbates this trend. So, how does LLM change the way we, AI product designers and human-AI interaction researchers, work? How might we work to innovate LLM applications for social good? In this talk, Professor Qian Yang draws upon her lab’s research on LLMs for education and for mental healthcare and explores these questions.
