Digitalisation & Artificial Intelligence
The research area digitalisation & artificial intelligence deals with individual and societal effects of new digital technologies. In addition to the analysis of technology acceptance and user behaviour, the research area focuses on the impact assessment of digital technologies. It is being researched how digitalisation and the introduction and development of artificial intelligence (AI) should be carried out in order to benefit users and society. With a needs-based, reflective and anticipatory approach, questions of acceptance, ethics, diversity and data protection are addressed. For instance:
- Which objections of people affected by digitalisation need to be addressed and how?
- How can an AI algorithm be programmed so that it does not discriminate against people?
- What data can an industrial robot collect without affecting the rights and needs of employees?
