Predictive Policing: Andreas Sesing at the Filmhaus Saarbrücken

Software predicting when and where a crime is about to be committed: What may sound like a scenario from science fiction in the style of ”Minority Report” has in the meantime become reality in cities such as Chicago, London or Munich. And whether we are dangerous subjects is already being decided by computers these days. […]

EIS at the 20th Fall Academy of the German Foundation for Law and Computer Science

Kevin Baum and Andreas Sesing will partake in the 20th Fall Academy of the German Foundation for Law and Computer Science (DSRI). Their paper on ”Requirements for the Explainability of Machine-aided Decisions” (”Anforderungen an die Erklärbarkeit maschinengestützter Entscheidungen”) was accepted. The Fall Academy is taking place in Bremen between September 11 and September 14, 2019. […]

EIS goes Rome

Last week, Timo Speith, Felix Bräuer, and Markus Langer from the EIS team presented the Panel “Explainable Intelligent Systems and the Trustworthiness of Artificial Experts” at the 9th International Conference on Information Law and Ethics in Rome. In the course of the project, we are going to present this panel a total of three times, […]

A retreat in the woods

EIS is a highly interdisciplinary research project. For this reason, we have been working hard on bridging the gap between different faculties. Until now, we have been doing this on a mainly theoretical level, including (but not limited to) attending weekly meetings, explaining our domain-specific jargons to each other and attending talks together. This time, […]

Paper accepted for RE’19

We are proud to announce that the EIS-influenced paper »Explainability as a Non-Functional Requirement« by Maximilian Köhl, Dimitri Bohlender, Kevin Baum, Markus Langer, Daniel Oster, and Timo Speith has been accepted for the 27th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference at Jeju Island, South Korea (23th to 27th September).

Delivering EIS to the Broad Public II

Kevin Baum continues to deliver insights from our project to the broad public in four non-scientific talks this month alone. The second two are taking place this week. On June 24, Kevin will give a talk on the ethical dimensions of algorithms used to predict remaining lifetime and premature deaths at the Hospizgespräche of the […]

Explainable Intelligent Systems – What is that supposed to be and why do I need it?

Why we need explainable intelligent systems and how we, as a part of a highly interdisciplinary research project, are investigating ways to achieve them Transparency, traceability, comprehensibility, and trust are all terms that, despite their traditional meanings, are increasingly cropping up in the context of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Often, you may also find the combination […]

Delivering EIS to the Broad Public

Kevin Baum will deliver fresh insights from our project to the broad public in four non-scientific talks this month alone. The first two are taking place next week. On June 11, Kevin will give a talk on ethical aspects of the application of algorithms in health care and medical care at the 372th Saarlandic Conference […]

Felix Bräuer presented “Trusting Artificial Experts” at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg

In March 2019 Felix Bräuer (Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Saarland University) has given a talk on “Trusting Artificial Experts” at the workshop Epistemic Trust in the Epistemology of Expert Testimony (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg). In his talk, Felix Bräuer has discussed which notions of trust are and aren’t applicable to our dealings with artificial intelligent recommender […]

Eva Schmidt presents “Künstliche Intelligente Systeme: Vertrauen und Verstehen” at University of Zurich

On Monday, May 27, at 4:15 pm, Eva Schmidt will give a talk entitled “Künstliche Intelligente Systeme: Vertrauen und Verstehen”/”Artificial Intelligent Systems: Trust and Understanding” as part of a cycle of lectures on artificial intelligence organized by the philosophy students at the University of Zurich.

EIS at Saarland University’s Open Day
