One of the challenges facing the field of AI is its portrayal in the media, which leads to misconceptions among policy makers, business leaders, and the general public alike. By communicating about AI in a clear, informed, and measured manner you can help to combat the flow of mis-information and convey the reality of today’s technology. Discover how much value science communication can add to your professional journey. You will learn to find your story and communicate it to your audience.
We will guide participants on how to quickly shape the story of their AI research. We’ll focus on how to structure this research story to form a blog post. Participants will learn how to explain their research to a general audience in a clear and concise manner. We will also touch on how to find suitable images and how to avoid hype when promoting research.
The slides used for the course can be found here.
