The Artificial Intelligence research group researches applications of AI and data-driven innovation. AI technology is developing rapidly and has an impact on many companies and governments. It is of social importance to steer this development in the right direction and to explore and, where necessary, record the limits of AI. People-oriented values such as transparency, trust, creativity and autonomy are central to this.

“It's the most efficient thing to do to allow algorithms to make decisions on behalf of human beings. […] And if this is more efficient, what happens to the ideals of freedom and human rights and individualism?”
