Seminar with guest lecturer Birgit Penzenstadler - The Rise of AI under the Lens of Sustainability. This is the first of several online seminars arranged by IPSI Industrial School, and it will be moderated by Manfred Jeusfeld, professor of informatics. The "Rise of AI” talk looks at the booming trend of AI research and development under the lens of sustainability. We explore areas of opportunity and potential transformation as well as reasons for concern and resulting needs.
Birgit Penzenstadler works as Assistant Professor at the Chalmers University of Technology, and as Adjunct Professor at the Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland. Before that, we was at California State University Long Beach, USA, where she led the Resilience Lab.
She has been researching software engineering for sustainability for a decade and focuses on artifact-based requirements engineering and requirements engineering for sustainability. The most prominent artefact from that is the Sustainability Awareness Framework SusAF, which was developed with the Sustainability Alliance (www.sustainabilitydesign.org).
Her expertise includes requirements elicitation, analysis, design and documentation techniques, for example sustainability goal modeling, as well as artifact models, quality modeling, tool support, and process improvement. Her new research focus is how neuroplasticity practices can support engineers and other computer workers in improving their presence, creativity, cognitive abilities, and overall resilience.
