The SKILL project is a cooperation of the European New School of Digital Studies (ENS) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (ZLL) of the European University Viadrina as well as the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Together, we develop an AI social science lab for research-based learning (SKILL). Students are involved in the process of building and applying AI-based technologies able to recognize, analyze, and visualize the structure of argumentation in scholarly articles and political arenas. Supported by novel argument analysis technology, students will enhance their knowledge on how to argue like professionals in the field, gain systematic knowledge about the state of a debate, and develop a deeper basic understanding of the benefits and limitations of AI technologies.
SKILL is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under funding reference No 16DHBKI082 and the Brandenburg Ministry of Science, Research and Cultural Affairs (MWFK).
