Students understand the challenges inherent in the use of artificial intelligence and automated decision-making systems, how processes for designing and using AI can be made human rights compliant, and how AI decisions can be explained.

Students are able to formulate a problem from the field of the use of artificial intelligence in appropriate detail with references to the most important contextual factors. They are able to recognise ethical issues from this complex, multi-layered area.

Artificial intelligence has become a major topic of regulation. But what is “AI”? What are its limits? Do we need “AI ethics”? AI laws? On a global scale? In Europe? In Germany? Is AI neutral? Can AI discriminate? Can “AI” take decisions? Can they – do they have to be – explained or be explainable? What are the limits to the use of AI in different societal settings? Automated cars exist, but what about automated judges? The course will tackle different examples of how AI and automated decision-making systems are used and will enable students to understand how law can serve to mitigate the risks and harness the opportunities of AI. 

After an introduction to the law, ethics, and technology of AI and online visits to representative AI actors*, we will apply what we have discussed to real cases selected by students and develop sustainable recommendations for the use of AI in society via service-learning and co-creation approaches.

Project Paper on one of the sessions.
