The III. International Social Sciences Congress of the Faculty of Letters Congist’24, titled “Social Sciences and Artificial Intelligence: Theory and Practice,” will be held on December 18-20, 2024. This year, the theme of Congist’24 will explore the relationship between artificial intelligence and social sciences, with a pioneering institute on AI research Erasmus University Rotterdam School of Philosophy as our partner institution. In today’s world, the use of AI influences various aspects of our lives and directly reshaping social structures. Its inclusion in areas such as political and ethical debates, as well as its impacts on creation, distribution, and utilization of scientific knowledge highlights its profound effects. The congress aims to examine the relationship between social sciences and artificial intelligence extensively, bringing together diverse approaches based on participants’ areas of expertise and interdisciplinary perspectives. Through this congress, we will explore both the positive and negative impacts of AI and by examining both its potentialities and limitations, we aim to provide an extensive framework for understanding how digital tools and artificial intelligence are transforming social sciences, including their influence on the production and accumulation of knowledge, and their broader impact on reshaping social sciences. Accordingly,

  • The congress will feature presentations of esteemed speakers renowned in AI and the social sciences, covering current debates, practices, and theoretical frameworks regarding the relationship between AI technologies and the social sciences.
