Abstract:

Would you like to learn how to communicate your AI research to a general audience? In this short tutorial you will learn how to turn your research articles into blog posts, how to use social media to promote your work, and how to avoid hype when writing about your research. You will also hear from AI researchers on how science communication has helped them improve their communication skills, and made their research more visible and impactful.

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 we can help to combat the flow of misinformation and convey the reality of today’s technology.

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, and how to find suitable images to illustrate their work.

After the session we will host a two-hour drop-in session to work with you one-on-one on your sci-comm questions, ideas and stories.
