Rudolf Seising introducing the IGGI project to CulturIA's team

Rudolf Seising introduced his research project IGGI – On the History of AI in West Germany at CulturIA’s kick-off meeting. His presentation summarised below was an inspiring example of a research project on the history of AI to CulturIA’s team.

IGGI – On the History of AI in West Germany, a conference by Rudolf Seising, 22/04/2022 :

The presentation Project IGGI –  On the History of AI in West-Germany gives an insight into the topics and methods used by the IGGI project staff to research the history of AI in West Germany.

Influences came both from already established scientific disciplines in the Federal Republic of Germany (mathematics, physics, linguistics, psychology) and from outside (England, USA), which influenced and shaped the emerging research image. The project asks how AI in West Germany eventually emerged as an internationally successful part of computer science. Next to analysing archival and other source material we are conducting oral history interviews with eyewitnesses in order to contextualise West-German AI research within the recent history of science and technology.
