As a result of the conference on Sustainable AI in June 2021, the Lab team announced to publish a special issue of the Sustainability Journal. Contributions from the perspectives of computer sciences, philosophy, (applied) AI ethics, social sciences, law and policy, and others are welcome and encouraged. The submission deadline is February 28, 2022.
Art Engagement Program
The Lab is currently in the process of establishing a program where artists will engage with academics to transcend the compartmentalisation that comes with visualising research results. The goal is to reconnect science and public discourse by way of the universal language of art. We can already announce the project leader, Maria Rivera Espinosa, and two artists that joined the program: Thijs Biersteker and Roosmarijn Pallandt.
Data Pollution and Power
The Lab has commissioned and funded a research project on the topic of “Data Pollution and Power (DPP)”, led and conducted by Dr. Gry Hasselbalch. The research project explores the power dynamics that shape the data pollution of AI across the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In addition to the establishment of a DPP group, a DPP white paper will be published in 2022.
