Successful application for third-party funding as part of the research initiative "Artificial Intelligence and the Society of the Future" of the Volkswagen Foundation

As part of the research initiative "Artificial Intelligence and the Society of the Future" of the Volkswagen Foundation, a planning grant was obtained for a total of nine months. The interdisciplinary project  Fair Artificial Intelligence Reasoning (FAIR) will discuss the integration of fairness concepts into the programming of artificial intelligence and examine to what extent this has an influence on the perception of legitimacy of algorithmic based decision making. Applications in higher education are used as examples. Together with colleagues from sociology and computer science, a full proposal will be prepared within the framework of the Planning Grant. Janine Baleis and Birte Keller, two new project staff members at the chair, were recruited for this project.
