A short video was published yesterday in which Prof. Dr. Jeroen van den Hoven speaks about design for values, responsible innovation and governments as 'launching customers' for realizing a good information society. He believes that there are many opportunities in this area for both the Netherlands and Europe.

Call for Papers: The Societal and Ethical Dimensions of Computer Simulations

2019-01-30T16:35:30+01:00January 30th, 2019|Categories: DDfV News|Tags: , , , , , |

It is our pleasure to announce a CfP for a special issue in the journal SIMULATION. This journal is dedicated to the practice of computer simulations from several disciplines, and therefore it reaches out to a number of computer scientists, researchers, and engineers. The special issue is on the ethics and societal dimension of computer simulations, and it will be edited by DDfV scientific director Jeroen van den Hoven and DDfV researcher Juan Duran. If you are doing research on this topic, you are cordially invited to submit a paper.

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

2018-10-24T12:47:06+01:00August 27th, 2018|Tags: |

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.

Explainable Artificial Intelligence and Conversational Agents (Workshop)

2018-12-17T17:02:28+01:00December 17th, 2018|Tags: , , , , |

Explainable Artificial Intelligence and Conversational Agents are hot topics. It is possible to converse with them. But what is the quality of the conversation? Are the agents good communication partners? And can we believe what they tell us? Why and how do they make certain choices?

DDfV Researchers Contribute to Dutch National AI Course

The Dutch National AI Course is a free online course that was launched in Januari 2019. Aim of the course is to inform as many Dutch people as possible about the basic principles of artificial intelligence (AI). Professors Jeroen van den Hoven (Delft Faculty of TPM) and Catholijn Jonker (Delft Faculty of EEMCS), scientific director respectively advisory member of the DDfV Institute, are among the experts interviewed for the course.

How to Win Elections in the 21st Century… and How to Save Democracy

2019-01-23T15:51:24+01:00November 12th, 2018|Categories: Blog by Jeroen van den Hoven, DDfV Blogs|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

According to the American Pragmatist philosopher John Dewey we have to reinvent democracy every day anew… and now, in the age of big data and artificial intelligence, in addition we have to design for it, every day. If we cannot design against undemocratic tendencies and technically implement our democratic ideals and ideas, Jeroen van den Hoven and Haye Hazenberg argue, we risk losing them altogether.

DDfV Director Jeroen van den Hoven Speaks on Ethics by Design at ERC Conference on AI

2018-10-24T14:55:51+01:00October 24th, 2018|Categories: Event announcement|Tags: |

The European Research Council (ERC) organizes a conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) on 25-26 October that will among others highlight potential avenues for seizing the opportunities of AI whilst limiting negative effects for humanity. DDfV scientific director Jeroen van den Hoven will speak on ethics by design as a powerful avenue to achieve this. The event can be followed through a live webcast.
