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, the research team aims at developing an AI social science lab for for inquiry-based learning (SKILL). Students will be involved in the process of building and applying AI-based technologies. These technologies will be able to recognize, analyze, and visualize the structure of argumentation in scholarly articles and political arenas, providing students with insights for their own university work. 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 will 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.
