Projekt: “Fair and Good ADM”


Leitung: Prof. Dr. Zweig, Prof. Dr. Joisten, Prof. Dr. Wenzelburger

The project “Fair and Good ADM” financed by the Federal Ministry of Higher Education and Research (BMBF) is a joint project with the “Algorithm Accountability Lab” (Prof. Zweig) and the Chair of Philosophy (Prof. Joisten) at the TUK and will research measures of quality and fairness of ADM systems and discuss ethical questions linked to the decision to use (or not use) ADM systems. The political science part of the project will closely inspect three ADM systems that have already been implemented, analyze the political decision-making process that led to the decision to use (and buy) the system as well as the regulatory framework. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide some ideas about how a decision-making system could look like that includes ethical principles in the policy-making and regulatory framework.
