25.6.2018

MINT-Entertainment-Education-Excellence

In cooperation with the Foundation for MINT-Entertainment-Education-Excellence (MINTEEE) we are pleased to give filmmakers exclusive insights into the future of medicine and hospitals in a one-day workshop on June 27.

What are the opportunities and risks of digital transformation and artificial intelligence in medicine? What challenges and ethical questions do scientists face? We examine the potential of fiction as a format for science communication and discuss how filmmakers assess the dramaturgical potential of this structural change in medicine. How can developmental cooperation between science and fiction - already intensively practiced in the USA - contribute to the creation of exciting, socially relevant and credible stories about the use of artificial intelligence in medicine in Germany?
