Buch - Moral AI and how we get it

What if a machine would determine who gets an organ and who does not? Can Artificial Intelligence be fair? Prof. Dr. Jana Schaich Borg has spent 24 years researching and understanding how individuals make social decisions and how they impact others. For the past seven years, her focus has been on the interactions of humans and AI. There are two major questions here: How could we build morality into an AI system, so it can interact with society in a way that feels aligned with our human values?

And how do we make sure we as a society employ AI in a way that is in line with our values?

Beyond these big scientific and societal questions, the conversation with Prof. Dr. Schaich Borg will dive into the threats and opportunities that arise from AI, the prototypes of moral machines she is working on in her lab and the role women play and must play in shaping a future, where more and more decisions will be made by AI-systems.

About the Speaker

Prof. Dr. Jana Schaich Borg is an Associate Research Professor at the Social Science Research Institute at Duke University. She uses neuroscience, computational modeling, and new technologies to study how we make social decisions that influence or are influenced by other people. As a neuroscientist, she analyses the data she collects as a data scientist in interdisciplinary teams.
Dr Schaich Borg’s current research projects focus on developing moral artificial intelligence and understanding social bonding, empathy, and human decision-making processes.
Based on her research areas, she is involved in the development of practical strategies for the ethical development of artificial intelligence. She is skilled at breaking down the implications of complex analytical problems and communicating them to broad audiences in an understandable way.
Together with Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Vincent Conitzer, she wrote the book “Moral AI – And How We Get There”. The chapters deal with questions such as: What is AI? Is there safe AI? Can AI be fair? And: Can AI incorporate human morality?
