"AI and Human Sense-making in the Law"
“AI and Human Sense-making in the Law” is a subproject of the research network „Meaningful Human Control. Autonomous Weaponsystems between Regulation und Reflection“ (MEHUCO), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Starting from the observation that they speak different languages, the project asks how the law and algorithmic based decision systems communicate with each other and understand their subject respectively. Being interested in the forms of interaction between sense-making actors, algorithms and their subjects, the project is also concerned with epistemological questions. It inquires into the new forms of knowledge production and thus also of human thinking as well as in the modes of living together that the so-called artificial intelligence introduces.
The interdisciplinary research network under the lead of the University of Paderborn is composed of scholars from Media Studies, Science & Technology Studies (STS), Robotics/Informatics, Law, Sociology/Criminology from five universities. The project is funded in the BMBF-framework of “strengthening and further developing the Peace and Conflict Research”.
