Evidence is Good. More Evidence is Not Always Better

Veröffentlicht am 13. Februar 2024

Evidence is good. More evidence is better. This seems self-evident and yet it could be wrong or at least too simple. This is how Liam Mannix summarizes a result of the ZiF research group "The Epistemology of Evidence-Based Policy: How Philosophy Can Facilitate the Science-Policy Interface" in his newsletter Examine. From February to June 2023, the interdisciplinary group with fellows from philosophy, law, ecosystem research, epidemiology and biology at ZiF researched how politicians deal with scientific findings - and why it is sometimes so difficult for science to get its evidence heard. The group's final conference took place at the ZiF in December.

AI and Art - Exhibition "Latent Space Agency" by Moritz Wehrmann

Veröffentlicht am 23. November 2023
The "latent space" is a space of possibilities and voids that leads into a dimension beyond our everyday understanding of logic and world contexts. ZiF Artist in Residence 2022 Moritz Wehrmann questions the nature of spaces and dimensions, be it in the mathematical representation of a high-dimensional space in AI models, in the relations of the media used and thematized or in the physical, sensually perceptible space. In latent spaces, as in Moritz Wehrmann's works, the incoherent is connected and opens up new perspectives.The exhibition was opened in October 2023.
