Veranstaltungen im laufenden Semester

An der Universität Osnabrück werden jedes Semester unterschiedlichste Lehrveranstaltungen aus dem Bereich Data Science angeboten. Die konkrete Ausrichtung und Schwerpunktsetzung der Veranstaltung liegt in den Händen der jeweiligen Vortragenden und ist natürlich auch vom Studiengang abhängig, für den sie angeboten wird.

So sind zum Beispiel die von den Arbeitsgruppen Cognitive Science, Informatik, Ökonometrie, Psychologie, Sozialforschung und angebotenen Veranstaltungen im Bereiche Data Science im Allgemeinen eher anwendungsorientiert, während die Angebote am Institut für Mathematik tendenziell eher theoretische Schwerpunkte setzen.

Aktuelles Semester

Introduction to the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence




This lecture provides an introduction to the emerging field of the Ethics of AI. It is open to all interested students of all levels, including those from the humanities, as well as scientific and technical disciplines.

The lecture is an ideal starting point to get an orientation in the field and to possibly start engaging with more specialized courses and/or research projects in the context of the Ethics and Critical Theories of AI group at the IKW.
The lecture will provide an overview of problems, philosophical theories and methods that comprise the field(s) of Ethics and Critical Theories of AI. This includes both the philosophical foundations of ethics, critical theory and some aspects of social philosophy (such as power) as well as different technological phenomena and legal aspects of AI. A particular focus will be contemporary data-driven and machine learning-based AI technology and its applications in digital consumer media. As we will see, questions of social equality and fairness are central to today's ethical concerns about AI, so that ethics needs to adopt a societal perspective, analyzing constellations of power, subjectivation, discrimination and subordination that relate to AI technology. Ethics will be framed in relation to intersectional critical philosophy, feminist and post-colonial theories. We will also touch upon relevant legal debates such as privacy and data protection legislation and AI regulation.

The lecture is hybrid and will be available in three formats: On site in the lecture hall; live stream on BBB; and asynchronous participation via video recordings. Discussion groups will be either in person or online.

Notice that for this lecture there are separate discussion groups (Übung) to which you have to subscribe separately. For the lecture you will earn 4 ECTS points based on a written exam (Klausur), for the discussion group another 4 ECTS points (requirements will be detailed in the first lecture).
