Digital hope

A video with Lena Ulbricht

Lena Ulbricht researches politics and power relations in the digital space in the Politics of Digitalization research group. Given the overwhelming power of big tech companies and the unpredictable consequences of AI, this is not necessarily the first topic that comes to mind when talking about "hope". In Maximilian Peukert's video, she explains the aspects of digitalization that give her hope. She describes regulatory efforts to steer digital development towards more pluralistic societies and the project of a feminist AI. She invites you to listen to her podcast, Purple Code, which she runs with others. The different perspectives of her podcast guests on the digital world inspire and encourage her research. The video is in German with English subtitles.
