Lab Platform Governance, Media and Technology (PGMT)

Portrait of Lab Lead and PGMT work

The online magazine Up2Date of the University of Bremen has produced a nice portrait of the head of the PGMT Lab Christian Katzenbach and of the work at PGMT. The text focussed on our wok on discourses and regulation of AI, specifically on the projects Shaping AI and Imaginaries of AI.

The article quotes Christian on his key interest in the interplay between public debate, technologies, and political decisions: “”There is often a perception that technologies are the driving factor here and that public debates and politics only react to technological developments,” he explains. In his opinion, this is a grave misunderstanding. He believes that the public’s perception of a technology plays a role in determining the extent to which it is limited by politics and how it develops in practical terms.”
