The field of artificial intelligence has developed rapidly in recent years. We spoke with Stephan Raaijmakers, professor by special appointment in Communicative AI, about the impact of artificial intelligence and why everyone should pay more attention to developments in this field.

The AI & Humanities, Help, Hype or Hassle event, on Thursday 7 April, aims to get the message of AI across to the humanities, according to Raaijmakers. ‘We want to show how beneficial an interaction between the humanities and the field of artificial intelligence could be. It’s an invitation to everyone in the humanities to open the discussion and see what each of us has to offer, but anyone with an interest in AI is welcome.’
