Vacancy: 8 Postdoctoral Researchers on Meaningful Human Control of Autonomous Intelligent Systems

2018-08-27T14:58:59+00:00August 27th, 2018|Artificial Intelligence, DDFV News|

TU Delft’s research program AiTech is recruiting 8 fully funded postdoctoral research positions in the field of meaningful human control of autonomous intelligent systems. Such systems include artificial intelligence (AI) in software (e.g. for recommendation, decision support and optimization), as well as embodied AI (e.g. robots, vehicles and intelligent devices). AI Tech believes that human control is key to counterbalance unforeseen and undesirable potential shortcomings of AI and robotics.

The Future of AI: Ethical, Legal, and Societal Issues (Workshop)

2018-08-27T14:10:20+00:00August 27th, 2018|Artificial Intelligence|

The Lorentz Center is hosting a 5-day workshop on The Future of AI: Ethical, Legal, and Societal Issues (27 Jan. - 1 Feb. 2019). The goal of this workshop is to create a multidisciplinary research agenda to bridge the conceptual gap among disciplines involved in developing AI applications, and to raise the level of sophistication at which the designers reason about the impact of these applications. The workshop is co-organized by DDfV researcher Virginia Dignum and co-sponsored by the Delft Design for Values Institute.

Incorporating Ethical Considerations in Autonomous & Intelligent Systems (Slides from the Event)

Incorporating Ethical Considerations in Autonomous & Intelligent Systems (A/IS) – Policy & Industry Requirements in the Algorithmic Age was the topic of an interactive discussion that took place in The Hague on Monday 11 June 2018. The Delft Design for Values Institute co-organized this event with the IEEE Standards Association. Some photos from the event and slides from some of the speakers.

Bridging the Gap Between New Technology and Safety & Responsibility of Self-Driving Cars

2018-07-19T15:39:05+00:00June 11th, 2018|Artificial Intelligence, Profiles of DDFV Researchers|

Self-driving cars are no longer science-fiction. Although many benefits are expected of automated driving systems (ADS), such as reducing congestion and less crashes, ethical concerns also arise. A responsible transition toward automated driving is desirable. In the project ‘Meaningful human control over automated driving systems’ dr. Filippo de Santoni de Sio contributes towards this transition by analyzing ethical issues concerning ADS.
