PETAL: Activities

The Planetary Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Lab (PETAL) conduct original research into the future of the humanities, and train students in conducting humanistic research. A number of activities are planned throughout the year. Find out what we have been up to.

Fellowship Program

Six student fellows were selected to work with the co-directors. Students attend lab meetings, carry out research tasks under the supervision of the co-directors, receive training in humanistic research to carry out an independent research project, and organize a one student event each semester. Fellows receive a stipend of 3,000 RMB per semester. Learn how to apply to the fellowship program.

Colloquium Series

PETAL invites researchers and artists working in the areas of artificial intelligence and planetary ethics to discuss their current research projects at four colloquium events throughout the year. Events are open to the whole DKU community, and student fellows are expected to attend the events, interview the researchers and produce podcasts and colloquium reports.

Student Events

Student fellows receive a budget to design a student-centered activity that will take place on the DKU campus in spring.
