About the Project
For two years, an international, interdisciplinary team researched ethical challenges posed by digitalisation and strategies to overcome them. How should chatbots be programmed to communicate in a non-discriminatory way? What rules must apply when programming AI so that it serves the good of all? How do we design the algorithms that shape our society? The findings can be read in the project report (in German).
Under the umbrella of the NoC (Global Network of Internet and Society Research Centers), the HBI and the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) are the coordinating centres, while the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University and the Digital Asia Hub are also involved as project partners. The project is funded by the Mercator Foundation. Frank-Walter Steinmeier was the patron of this project.
