The next playground meeting will take place on Thursday, June 20, from 12:00 to 13:30, faculty of IDE (Studio 23/24, just right after the main entrance).

The theme of this playground meeting is “Meaningful Human Control“ in the context of autonomous intelligent systems, for which we team up with our colleagues from the AiTech program. During the playground we will touch upon questions like: how do autonomous systems impact daily life, what does meaningful human control mean in this context, and to what extent is ‘control’ possible and desirable.

To kickstart discussion, the program contains pitch presentations of:

Evgeni Aizenberg: AI and Human Rights: What’s at stake and how to move forward?
Luciano Siebert: Uncertainty and Metareasoning for Meaningful Human Control
Timo Melman: Fighting the Need for Speed: Incorporating human risk-seeking in automotive support system design
— Moderator: Evgeni Aizenberg

We invite you to send in insights, questions and remarks that you would like to address during this of future playground meetings, or to volunteer or nominate someone for a pitch presentation.

If you register for the meeting (,  we can order you lunch, but feel free to drop in at the last moment as well, also without registering. To add this event to your digital calendar, you can use this ical download.

Playground meetings are our informal lunch meetings for discussing design for values topics and sharing ideas and insights. They are planned monthly on the 3rd Thursday and rotate between the four DDfV faculties. Each meeting is centered around a theme, like ‘design for wellbeing’, or ‘value conflict’. You are invited to send in ideas for topics or questions to address during these meetings, or to volunteer or nominate someone for a pitch presentation.
