FIAS Forum: Knowledge, trust & responsibility in the age of machine learning

Ethical and epistemological aspects

FIAS Forum Simon Ethik

Prof. Dr. Judith Simon from the University of Hamburg will be speaking. She will talk about current challenges and ethical issues in information technology.

How can we ensure that technological development is in line with our ethical values? Can we trust AI - and should we? 'What responsibility do we bear in the design and use of information technology?' - questions like these have been central to the debate on advancing digitalization and artificial intelligence in recent years.

In the upcoming lecture, Professor Judith Simon, an expert in ethics in information technology at the University of Hamburg, will examine precisely this interweaving of ethical, epistemological and political questions in the context of big data, artificial intelligence and digitalization. As a member of the German Ethics Council and various other bodies for scientific policy advice, she brings comprehensive perspectives to the discussion.

The lecture will held be in German!
