Wiebke Loosen, Stephan Dreyer, Wolfgang Schulz
and their co-authors were awarded first place in the DGPuK Journal Article Award 2023
for their article "Von der Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion zur kommunikativen KI" [
From Human-Machine Interaction to Communicative AI].
KI as a Research Object
The article deals with the automation of communication as an object of communication and media research. The central thesis is that in order to be able to comprehensively deal with the transformation of our media environment associated with the automation of communication, the view must be expanded from the perspective of the "direct interaction of man and machine" to "social communication". Such a broadening of perspective asks how the dynamics of social communication as a whole change when "communicative artificial intelligence" becomes part of it.
Co-authors were Andreas Hepp, Juliane Jarke, Sigrid Kannengießer, Christian Katzenbach, Rainer Malaka, Michaela Pfadenhauer and Cornelius Puschmann. The article was published in the journal "Publizistik" in November 2022.
