Our CSSM e-zine is out! Tinkering with AI Potentials and Limitations

When Microbes AI Takes Over

This zine was born of a workshop held at the Centre for the Social Study of Microbes in March 2023. We began the workshop with a primer on generative AI given by Matti Pohjonen. The subsequent activity combined two foci: (1) the concepts that we use at CSSM to describe/analyze microbes and (2) the current context/proliferation of AI technologies. Our hope for this workshop was to playfully combine the two, using it as an opportunity both to familiarize ourselves with generative AI and to reflect on concepts that are central to our work at CSSM.
