Pint of Science comes to Kiel with a special event in English, supported by Alumni und Freunde der Christian-Albrechts-Universität. 

Are you interested in knowing more about the past, the present, and the future? Three great speakers will take us on a journey from ancient roman buildings, to molecules invisible to naked eye, to the (sometimes unequal) consequences of applying Artificial Intelligence in decision making. 

Drinks will be available at the bar and a scientific pub quiz will allow you to win amazing prizes donated by our sponsors.

Ain't no monkey business - illustrating ultrafast quantum chemistry by decloaking the wizard of time.

Hendrik Böhnke (Postdoc at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, CAU)
Have you ever wondered how molecules respond to light? Speculated about the speed at which light-induced molecular reactions take place? Maybe even asked yourself by which means one can possibly unveil such rapid motions of such small particles utterly invisible to the naked eye?

This talk aims at elucidating these issues in an easy-to-understand storytelling fashion and showcases my scientific findings on the mechanistic processes of a novel light-driven molecular switch. The talk concludes with an outlook on promising properties for future applications of this particular class of molecules.

AI – Artificial Inequality?

Jonas Carstens (PhD Candidate at Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf)
Artificial intelligence is used to determine credit scores, insurance premiums and even predicts the probability of a convict reoffending. It will increasingly influence many aspects of our lives, from consumer credit to employers’ hiring decisions. While the advance of AI will produce economic gains, it will also produce losses and will threaten equality.
Decisions and recommendations supported by artificial intelligence can have severe consequences for marginalized communities while being opaque and almost impossible to understand by those whose data is subject to AI mining.

The Building Boom of Rome's Beverly Hills

Roberta Ferritto (Postdoc at the Institute for Classical Archaeology, CAU)
Did the ancient Romans go on holiday just like us? Where did they go when felt tired of the big city?
During the Roman age the construction boom of luxury villas gradually spread along the Italian coasts, and the central Tyrrhenian area was at one point the equivalent of present-day Beverly Hills. The most beautiful villas of the richest Romans were between Tuscany and Campania and boasted spectacular views, elegant decorations, and sumptuous architectures.
This talk seeks to explore what role maritime villa play in the ancient landscape, economy, social and political Rome’s life.
