Responsible Governance AI


AI-Trust is a project in the program “Verantwortliche Künstliche Intelligenz” (“Responsible Artificial Intelligence”) of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Foundation (Baden-Wuerttemberg Stiftung).

Human-Technology Interaction Lab

The Neuroethics and AI Ethics Lab performs innovative research at the frontier of ethical, legal and social aspects of new and emerging sciences and technologies at the intersection of neuroscience, neurology, artificial intelligence and neurotechnology.

Brain Data, Neurotechnology and Fundamental Rights

Together with colleagues from neuroscience, computer science, ethics, philosophy, law and other fields we work on developing guidelines and governance frameworks for the responsible collection, aggregation and use of brain data, particularly regarding data from consumer neurotechnology devices and applications.

Agency and Neurotechnology

We will conduct phenomenological interviews with patients that are or have been treated with neurotechnological devices, for example with deep brain stimulation (DBS) for neurological or psychiatric disorders or brain-computer interfaces for communication or other assistance.

Social Robotics

Together with our colleague and FRIAS Research Fellow (2019-2020) Shelly Levy-Tzedek, head of the Cognition, Aging and Rehabilitation Lab at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, we explore fundamental philosophical concepts as well as ethical, legal and social aspects of human-robot interaction and cooperation, such as trust, agency and autonomy.

DaDu Health

The overarching goal of DaDuHealth is to develop recommendations for the regulation of the access to and the use of health-related data. To do so, DaDuHealth analyses legal and ethical-conceptual framework conditions of data use.

Outreach and Knowledge Transfer

Outreach and knowledge transfer are central aspects of our work on Responsible AI. To this end we collaborate with the Public Outreach and Science Communication Project Nexus Experiments (led by Prof. Oliver Müller from our team) at the University of Freiburg
