Embedded Ethics Lab

Artificial intelligence is likely to have a profound impact on our whole society. It raises deep ethical and legal questions. At CAIM, research, education and interactions with partners from clinics and industry are thus accompanied by ethical reflection. Related activities crystallize at the Embedded Ethics Lab, an integral part of CAIM.

The multidisciplinary Embedded Ethics Lab aims

  • to provide low-threshold ethical support to our researchers,
  • to facilitate cross-disciplinary discussion on the broader significance of AI,
  • to complement the natural science perspective on AI with viewpoints from the humanities,
  • to foster, and to contribute to, the public debate on AI.

Ethics Talks

To foster public dialogue into ethical challenges of AI applications in medicine, the CAIM Embedded Ethics Lab hosts Ethics Talks in regular intervals.
