Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Dr. Christoph Lütge on “Making AI Trustworthy: the TUM Institute for Ethics in AI”

On January 13th, Prof. Dr. Christoph Lütge (TUM School of Governance, Education and Management) will give a talk entitled “Making AI Trustworthy: the TUM Institute for Ethics in AI”. In October 2019, the Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (IEAI) at TUM officially opened.

The university has been studying the complex interactions of science, technology and society since 2012 through the work of the Munich Center for Technology in Society. As part of the MCTS, the IEAI will focus on ethical implications of artificial intelligence. TUM aims to combine its traditional strengths in science and technology fields with the humanities and social sciences, creating a force to shape the kind of AI technologies that will earn trust and acceptance in society. It will bring together talented researchers in medicine, natural sciences and engineering to collaborate in interdisciplinary teams with partners from the fields of social sciences and ethics. TUM is now kicking off the first research projects such as “Autonomous Driving Ethics”, “An AI-based Medical Ethical Advisory Systems” or “AI for Human-Centered Industry 4.0”.

As the director of the IEAI, Professor Lütge will give a talk about the Institute’s wide spectrum work and its goals for the future (TUM press release).
