Artificial Intelligence has the potential to revolutionize research, but it is still up to us to become the masters of AI and not its slaves. Learn how to use AI critically and how to integrate it in ways that expand your fields, with novel research questions, conjectures and basis for justifications. 
We are delighted to invite you to submit an application for the DHSS Hub second summer school. Join us for three days of hands-on workshops with leading researchers, learn how to use a variety of AI tools for a range of purposes, as well as machine learning methods. 
The summer school will take place on 9th-11th September.
On the 8th September, the DHSS Hub Conference on AI in the humanities and social sciences will take place. More details on the conference will be available in the future.

The 19th Chais Conference on the Study of Innovation and
Learning Technologies:

Learning in the Digital Era

The DHSS Hub participated in the 19th Chais Conference that took place on 5th June, presenting a panel on Innovation
in the Humanities and the Social Sciences: Pedagogy and Research
In the panel, we discussed the changes that computational methods bring to research in the humanities and the social sciences, tackling difficult questions regarding the objections to these methods and their unsystematized application in research, as well as pedagogical challenges, such as how to teach programming languages with orientation to the humanities. The participants in our panel: Daphna Kenig, Gilad Gutman, Zef Segal, Yael Dekel, Alon Fishman and Noa Turgeman.
