Ethical and human-centered AI

Despite our enthusiasm for the possibilities offered by AI, we will also need to make sure that it will be beneficial to human society and the environment at large. Thus, the main challenges in artificial intelligence are of a socio-technical nature. We need AI that is responsible, fair, free from bias, trustworthy and transparent, where humans can exert meaningful control, and the AI does not pose a threat to human wellbeing, or the future of our planet.

Our research focuses on understanding the relevant ethical and human-centred values pertaining to AI, the ways in which AI challenges these values, and methods by which such values may be embodied in real-world systems in various domains, including healthcare, education, public services, media/social media and democracy, environmental monitoring, manufacturing, logistics and mobility.
