Ethics of Algorithms

In the project "Ethics of Algorithms" we deal with the social consequences of algorithmic decision making. We want to contribute to a design of algorithmic systems that leads to more participation for all. It is not the technically possible, but rather the socially meaningful that must be the guiding principle.

We Humans and the Intelligent Machines

The use of algorithms has long since ceased to be science fiction and has become reality. We must therefore re-evaluate the relationship between humans and machines.

Ethics of Algorithms

How do algorithms influence our everyday life? We inform and discuss about their social consequences, 
chances and possible solutions to ensure that these systems are used to serve society!
