Talk 1 (Florian Wilhelm): Highlights and Trends of the PyConDE / PyData 2023 Berlin
PyConDE / PyData 2023 Berlin is a significant event for the Python community. In this talk, we’ll cover the key takeaways and trends from the conference, including emerging technologies and best practices in Python programming and data science. We’ll also discuss the impact of the conference on the Python community, and how it is shaping the future of the language. Whether you attended or not, this talk will provide a comprehensive overview of PyConDE / PyData 2023 Berlin, and keep you informed about the latest trends and practices in the Python ecosystem.

Talk 2 (Stefanie Stoppel): “Happily ever after? A challenging view on contemporary AI narratives“
„AI will lead to a better future“
„AI will help us solve our most pressing problems“
„Artificial General Intelligence will soon be a reality, and we need to ensure it’s aligned with human values“

These beliefs are at the core of the current AI hype. But how do they shape public discourse? And given our current economic, environmental, social and power structures, is it reasonable to believe these narratives? Join me as I journey onto the stage of artificial intelligence: together we will explore which narratives have a place in the spotlight – and which ones are often obscured by dogma, lobbying, and persuasive PR.
