Lines of research within the research group
AI in the human loop
Professionals are increasingly being supported by AI (Artificial Intelligence). But how do professionals experience this? What kind of support strengthens their profession and what do they not want? In this project, we investigate how different roles for AI (decision maker, advisor or knowledge source) are experienced by future professionals in preventive care.
- Ethical considerations of Augmented Reality in High-Tech manufacturing
- Exploring Responsible AI Practices in Dutch Media Organizations
- Robots in education Implementing robot tutors in a morally justified way
Digital Ethics contributes to digital innovation for educational purposes and the development of digital and ethical awareness of (upcoming) professionals. We are involved in the Digital Twins Lab and have strong ties with the Institutes for ICT, Engineering & Design, Media and Archimedes.
Organizations are looking for ways to responsibly leverage digitalization. Domain expertise and knowledge of ethics and IT are brought together. The research group works on assignments and projects covering this; it performs research with partners; sometimes with (co) financing.
