I am Julia Schneider aka docjsnyder, a Berlin-based comic author. I create tailor-made comic essays – often on complex topics at the intersection of society & economics, art, data and technology. With my work, I aim to inspire people to form their own positions - bridging the gap between intellect and intuition.
At this year's re:publica, our latest comic essay about non-fungible tokens, the Non-Fungible Comic, will be on display for the first time in the form of an exhibition - and digitally for download on our website nonfungiblecomic.org. I prefer a playful and simple access to knowledge, e.g. with open licenses.
My best known work to date is the comic essay on artificial intelligence “We Need to Talk, AI – A Comic Essay on Artificial Intelligence” (with Lena Kadriye Ziyal). It is available in English, German (“KI, wir müssen reden – Ein Comic Essay über Künstliche Intelligenz”), Turkish, Spanish, Russian and Slovenian, and as open online course. I have a PhD in economics (empirical microeconometric studies of the labor market) and worked for many years in academic economics and data science.
