In what ways can AI be used to promote social progress? Numerous innovative project teams with a wide range of objectives answered this question on 18 April during the virtual pitch, organised as two clusters, 40 ideas, 40 pitches ‒ 100% AI!
Again for the third CIP pitch, each team first presented its idea in a self-produced three-minute video and then answered the experts panel’s questions. The ideas were divided into two themed clusters: one on the topic of ‘Learning and Participating with AI’ and another dedicated to ‘Working with AI’. The experts on the panel include our CIP co-operation partners as well as partners of CIP and Civic Coding events: Jana Klawitter (Federal Association of Non-statutory Welfare, BAGFW), Nicole Röttger (Apiarista GmbH), Andreas Schuller (Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering, IAO), Daniel Abbou (KI Bundesverband e.V.), Marie Gutbub (Prototype Fund), Roman Kormann (Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund, DGB), Alexandra Ortloff (Bundesverband Deutsche Startups e.V.) and Victoria Boeck (CityLAB Berlin). BMAS representatives also served on the experts panels for both clusters.
Which ideas were the most persuasive?
Following the pitch, the experts panel vigorously discussed the ideas presented on the basis of the assessment criteria. The teams that were successful in winning over the panel and thus secured prize money of up to €20,000 as well as access to a variety of advisory, networking and workshop opportunities for further developing their ideas will be announced during the award ceremony at re:publica 2023 on 5 June. The selected teams will, of course, be informed in advance.
