Public Interest Tech: A take on the actors’ perspectives on ecological sustainability
We asked actors in the field of public interest AI how they deal with ecological sustainability. What do they know about it in general and what measures do they take in particular?
The AI Transparency Cycle
A common notion of AI transparency is to either make code public or explain exactly how an algorithm makes a decision. Both ways sound plausible, but fail in practice.
The age of machine autonomy?
Can machines be autonomous – or is it a human prerogative? This categorical question dominates many discussions on our relationship to purportedly intelligent machines. A human vs. machine rhetoric, however, does not get us very far.
ArtificiaI Intelligence made in X: The German AI policy landscape
AI is also discussed at the subnational level. Laura Liebig and Dr. Anna Jobin asked themselves: Why do German federal states feel the need to individually issue AI policies?
Shaping AI in the interests of employees
AI offers opportunities and risks for employees. But what can managers and works councils do to enable potential positive effects and avoid negative effects?
Fest-Forward: Speculative Governance of the Smart Wall
Serious issues raised by advances in algorithmic immigration and border control: addressing the smart wall.

Governing AI: Political players between vision and regulation
Not only tech giants in Silicon Valley influence the development of artificial intelligence (AI): supranational political institutions, states and parties are also active leaders and regulators. They set legal standards, formulate strategies for the future, explore potentials and dangers, promote and sanction or even adopt controversial positions. How do political actors position themselves in the AI debate between economic interest, ethical controversies and the common good? Where do their strategies differ? Is politics here more of a driver or a driven force?
Algorithmic decisions and human rights
Who is responsible if an autonomous vehicle is involved in an accident? What are the consequences of automated profiling of the unemployed? How intelligent is our use of artificial intelligence, and what visions and strategies do we need for the future? Innovations in the field of artificial intelligence are impacting nearly every area of our everyday life. However, algorithmic decision-making leads to complex human rights implications. In this dossier researchers of the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society and the NoC European Hub discuss the role of law and ethics in the context of algorithmic decision-making.
