We are an interdisciplinary lab in the Faculty of Business and Information Technology, exploring how to make the relationship between AI and society work better.
Embedding AI in society presents a complex mix of technical and social challenges, not the least of which is: as more decisions are delegated to AI systems that we cannot fully verify, understand, or control, when do people trust them?
Our approach is to work towards empowering people to make good trust decisions about intelligent machines of different sorts, in different contexts. How can we conceive of and build intelligent machines that people find justifiably worthy of their trust?
Our work draws on extensive experience in leading AI adoption projects in commercial and non-profit organizations across several sectors, as well as faculty research expertise in artificial intelligence, artificial life, trust, and computational self-awareness.
A major aim is to tackle the challenge of building intelligent machines that are reflective and socially sensitive. By doing this, we aim to build machines with the social intelligence required to act in more trustworthy ways, and the self-awareness to reason about and communicate their own trustworthiness.
