Publication of the Cambridge Handbook of Responsible Artificial Intelligence

Researchers from the University of Freiburg present interdisciplinary perspectives on responsible artificial intelligence

Freiburg, Dec 02, 2022

A research group led by Prof. Dr. Silja Vöneky, Institute of Public Law, Dr. Philipp Kellmeyer, Faculty of Medicine, and Prof. Dr. Oliver Müller, Department of Philosophy, has published the Cambridge Handbook of Responsible Artificial Intelligence - Interdisciplinary Perspectives, which is available both in print and online as an e-book (open access). It comprises 28 chapters written by participants of the virtual conference “Global Perspectives on Responsible AI” (2020, Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies). 

The book will provide conceptual, technical, ethical, social and legal perspectives on “Responsible AI” and discusses pressing governance challenges for AI and AI systems for the next decade from a global and transdisciplinary perspective. The exchange with distinguished scholars from different continents (Asia, Australia, USA, and Europe) and from different disciplines (AI, computer science, medicine, neurosciences, philosophy, and law) at the June 2020 virtual conference provided an excellent basis to find new interdisciplinary answers and perspectives on questions of responsible AI governance and regulation. 

The book will be structured by the following eight sections: 

  • Foundations of Responsible AI
  • Current and Future Approaches to AI Governance
  • Responsible AI Liability Schemes
  • Fairness and Non-Discrimination in AI Systems
  • Responsible Data Governance
  • Responsible Corporate Governance of AI Systems
  • Responsible AI Healthcare and Neurotechnology Governance
  • Responsible AI for Security Applications and in Armed Conflict
