Algorithmic Monoculture and the Ethics of Systemic Exclusion

hybrid: on-site at ESA 1, W 221 or via webinar access

As the number of job applications increase, hiring managers have turned to artificial intelligence (AI) to help them make decisions faster, and perhaps better. Where once each manager did their own first rough cut of files, now third party software algorithms sort applications for many firms. Human mistakes are inevitable, but fortunately heterogenous. Not so with machine decision-making. Relying on the same AI systems means that each firm makes the same mistakes and suffering from the same biases. When the same person re-encounters the same model again and again, or models trained on the same dataset, she might be wrongly rejected again and again. In this talk, I will argue that it is wrong to allow the quirks of an algorithmic system to consistently exclude a small number of people from consequential opportunities, and I will suggest solutions that can help ameliorate the harm to individuals.

Artificial Intelligence as Philosophical Disruption: Understanding Human-Technology Relations after the Digital Revolution

hybrid: on-site at ESA 1, W 221 or via webinar access

The impact of artificial intelligence on society is so profound that it can be considered to be disruptive. AI does not only have radical consequences for society - as is expressed by the concept of ‘the Fourth Revolution’ and ‘Society 5.0’ that is emerging from that - but also for ethics itself. Technologies have become ethically disruptive, in the sense that they challenge and affect the very concepts with which we can do ethics in the first place. What do’ agency’, ‘responsibility’ and ‘empathy’ mean when artificial agents are entering society? What does ‘democratic representation’ mean when AI systems interfere with the very idea of representation itself? What can the notion of ‘the humane’ still mean when AI systems become an intrinsic part of human actions and decision-making? This talk will explore phenomenon of ethical disruption in detail, by investigating the various ways in which technologies – and not only human beings – can be ethically significant. Breaking the human monopoly on ethics and expanding it towards technology will make it possible to connect ethics more directly to practices of design. The resulting ‘Guidance Ethics Approach’ enables bottom-up ethical reflection that can foster the responsible design, implementation and use of new and emerging technologies.

unfortunately, today's talk has to be cancelled. We are very sorry

The presentation series “Train your engineering network” on diverse topics of Machine Learning addresses all interested persons at TUHH, from MLE partners as well as from the Hamburg region in general and aims at promoting the exchange of information and knowledge between these persons as well as their networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Thereby, the machine learning activities within MLE, TUHH and in the wider environment shall be made more visible, cooperations shall be promoted and also interested students shall be given an insight.

Patrick Sontheimer - Long short-term memory for surrogate modeling

Long-Short Term Memory is a gated architecture designed to combat the vanishing/exploding gradient problem in recurrent neural networks (RNN). In the presentation, time series regression will be performed on multiple-input multiple-output data, to create a surrogate Model.

Lectures will be held online via Zoom on Mondays starting at 16:00 in the winter semester 2023 in English. General zoom link for all lectures: Link

Taming the Machine. The Ethics in Information Technology Public Lecture Series

This semester’s edition of "Taming the Machines" explores the interrelated ethical, political, and technological aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in an interdisciplinary way. 
 
AI-driven technologies are increasingly shaping the world we live in, sparking growing ethical scrutiny. As a result, it appears more and more urgent that societies collectively address how and in what way the further development of such technologies might be tangibly influenced. And, importantly, by whom this task should be advanced and according to which agendas? Ethicists, legislators, designers, and engineers, each bring distinct expertise and capacities to the multiplicity of social issues raised by these technologies, yet the perspectives and approaches they offer may or may not be complimentary or even simultaneously realisable (let alone mutually satisfactory). Amidst the rising tensions surrounding the AI driven transformation of our shared social space, particularly in the domain of governance and regulation, this lecture series asks how we might best accompany innovation in AI and realise ethically desirable future outcomes. In other words, to delve into the questions of what it means to live well in a society that is increasingly driven by AI tools? What design and regulative choices ought we make? What social infrastructures and normative frameworks might be needed for the future handling of emerging technologies? How could or should openness to innovation be reconciled with defending and developing the ideals of a free and democratic society under the rule of law? 
 
To explore these and other related questions, this public lecture series invites distinguished researchers from computer science, philosophy, and political theory to present and discuss their work.

Fair, Transparent, and Accountable AI: What is Legally Required, What is Ethically Desired, and What is Technically Feasible?

hybrid: on-site at ESA 1, W 221 or via webinar access

Western societies are marked by diverse and extensive biases and inequality that are unavoidably embedded in the data used to train machine learning. Algorithms trained on biased data will, without intervention, produce biased outcomes and increase the inequality experienced by historically disadvantaged groups.
To tackle this issue the EU commission recently published the Artificial Intelligence Act – the world’s first comprehensive framework to regulate AI. The new proposal has several provisions that require bias testing and monitoring. But is Europe ready for this task? 
In this session I will examine several EU legal frameworks including data protection as well as non-discrimination law and demonstrate how despite best attempts they fail to protect us against the novel risks posed by AI. I will also explain how current technical fixes such as bias tests -  which are often developed in the US - are not only insufficient to protect marginalised groups but also clash with the legal requirements in Europe. 
I will then introduce some of the solutions I have developed to test for bias, explain black box decisions and to protect privacy that were implemented by tech companies such as Google, Amazon, Vodaphone and IBM and fed into public policy recommendations and legal frameworks around the world.
