AI and related digital technologies have become a disruptive force in our societies and the calls for ethical frameworks and regulation have become louder.
We hold that responsibility is a key concept for anchoring AI innovation to human rights, ethics and human flourishing.
As an interdisciplinary working group we have been working on this topic at the University of Freiburg since 2018. Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, Dr. Philipp Kellmeyer, Prof. Dr. Oliver Müller, Prof. Dr. Silja Vöneky
An Interdisciplinary Virtual Conference – 25/26 June 2020
At our virtual conference in June 2020 we discussed some of the most pressing technological, philosophical, ethical and legal challenges of AI and AI systems for the next decade from a global and transdisciplinary perspective. To this end we welcomed researchers, scholars, experts from various fields, and lawmakers to exchange thoughts and ideas about fundamental and specific key elements of responsible AI. The virtual exchange with participants from different continents (Asia, Australia, USA, and Europe) and from different disciplines (AI, computer science, medicine, neurosciences, philosophy, and law) gave an opportunity to find a common basis and new answers to pressing questions of AI governance and regulation. For more information have a look at the videos from our conference:
