Save the date: 27-28.10.2022 at the VolksHotel Amsterdam, our workshop on (Un)fairness of Artificial Intelligence.

This 2-day workshop, hosted by Human(e) AI of the University of Amsterdam, will explore ethical, social, and regulatory aspects of AI (un)fairness. Submitted proposals should focus on AI systems designed to support democracy such as government decision-making, public administration or the media. We aim to bring together researchers from different academic disciplines to zoom in on the intricate democratic issues that arise when transferring decision authority to an AI-based system, 
The workshop will take place from 27.10. to the 28.10.2022 in Amsterdam at the VolksHotel. While we will not publish proceedings, we aim at submitting a proposal for a special issue to a high-impact academic journal. Please submit your extended abstract (max. 500 words excluding references), clearly stating the relevance, research question, and method. Submissions are due 15.05.2022 via email to

Both in the popular press and in scientific literature, it is often assumed that people are quite wary of agentic (i.e, smart) forms of technology. Yet, at the same time, there is also widespread enthusiasm about the prospects of such technologies, and the use of certain forms (e.g., search algorithms) is widespread, seemingly contradicting this assumed wariness. In this project, Dr. Gijs van Howelingen - professor at the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Amsterdam for the Strategy & International Business Section - sets to investigate if both these suggestions, viz., the expectations that people are suspicious of agentic technologies and are enthusiastic about them, are correct. On the 11th of May at 1 P.M. CET, find out more about this topic in a conversation with Chris Starke - postdoctoral researcher in Responsible AI for the RPA Human(e) AI.
