Responsible AI

In the Artificial Intelligence Governance and Auditing (AIGA 2020-2022)  project we have researched the legal, ethical and technical dimensions of algorithmic decision-making.

We have worked in close collaboration with the industry to find ways to put responsible AI into practice. The major research outputs include end-user views on algorithmic explainability, state-of-the-art AI governance and commercialization of responsible AI.
