Events & publications: my external activities in January 2024

The year of 2024 started as busy as the previous one. A few AI Act technicals took place and finally concluded the negotiations. Personally, I see the result with rather mixed feelings - more on that next week. In contrast, my university lectures in Cologne, Karlsruhe, and Florida (virtually) as well as my trips to Davos and Paris were real highlights! In total, I did 16 events as speaker, wrote 1 article, was 3x quoted in the press, and gave 2 interviews.
