March 2021 Issue
Reflecting on intelligent systems
The new issue of “forschung leben” deliberates the topic of “responsibility” as a research maxim. The focus is on researchers from the University of Stuttgart, who work at the interface between natural and engineering sciences and humanities and social sciences. Their research activities and findings constantly reflect and consider the economic, social, and cultural implications of their work.
How can we ensure that unfair or discriminating decision-making is prevented when using artificial intelligence? How do the ‘gene scissors’ CRISPR-Cas9 accelerate medical research, and should we involve laymen and women in the debate about genome editing? The new issue of ‘forschung leben’ addresses these and many other issues relating to the topic of responsibility.
