DDfV scientific director Jeroen van den Hoven will tomorrow make the keynote remarks at the sixth annual Justice Stephen Breyer Lecture on International Law of the Brookings Institute. Topic is 'Digital technology in the age of artificial intelligence: A comparative perspective'.

From 13 to 17 May 2019, Dr. Elisabeth Lex will visit TU Delft at the invitation of the DDfV Institute. Her work on credibility assessment and trust in recommender systems allows us to translate our values concerning misinformation and filter bubbles into technological norms and concrete design requirements. This work is strongly grounded in evaluation using behavioral user data, which allows us to assess value realization in design/engineering outcomes.

Incorporating Ethical Considerations in Autonomous & Intelligent Systems (A/IS) – Policy & Industry Requirements (Panel Discussion)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly spreading in a range of application areas. It holds great promise to benefit society as well as business, but they also bring forth social, legal and ethical challenges. Join us at this symposium on Monday 11 June, co-organized with IEEE, to learn more about key trends in this area.
