Project description
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most revolutionary technologies approaching and potentially affecting nearly every area of life. The ETAIROS project aims at harnessing the advances of AI to facilitate governance of the society in an ethical way. The aims of ETAIROS are 1) To develop a theoretically and empirically grounded approach for steering the development and use of AI and its societal impacts; 2) to yield a body of novel knowledge on context specific challenges, opportunities and barriers to ethical and responsible use of AI; 3) to yield tested design and machine learning processes for ethical AI, 4) to yield empirically justified governance approaches and practices for the use of AI. These contributions are expected to frame the keys to socially sustainable strategic planning, policy and regulation of AI. Public, private and third-sector actorsí ethical self-regulation and steering of the society will be supported by ETAIROS through various forms of collaboration.
