Publizistik: Public communication in times of artificial intelligence

In a recent article in Publizistik, Mike Schäfer and Hartmut Wessler argue that public communication is changing, often due to sociotechnical innovations. In their essay, the authors criticize the reaction of communication science to these developments and its role in the corresponding scientific and public discussions.
