AI and Equal Opportunities
This event is organized by the team of the Vice-Rector for Human Resources and Digital Infrastructure.
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is steadily increasing in all areas of life. Since all AI systems are fed by humans, they reflect human preferences and assumptions. Can we program fairness into AI systems? Do diverse teams also create diverse databases? And what can we learn from AI? Together with experts, we will be discussing how we can ensure that AI becomes a technology that benefits everyone.
