The implementation of Autonomous AI systems in the public realm provides tremendous benefits both for individuals and society as a whole. However, the utilization of these systems also creates numerous ethical issues of which some possess the power of existential change.
To mitigate harms, and foster human flourishing AI systems require ethics in their life-cycle: the design, development, deployment, and use. This produces central themes of ethical AI research: system robustness, machine fairness, human autonomy, privacy and wellbeing, human-AI collaboration, and human-AI society.
To effectively tackle these vital subjects this laboratory fosters philosophical and ethical research with a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration. In this sense, it promotes the conceptual and practical development of ethical, trustworthy, AI in Europe, and globally.
