VOLKSWAGEN ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE AND THE SOCIETY
VOLKSWAGEN FOUNDATION: ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE AND THE SOCIETY
The initiative focuses on joint, integrative research approaches in the social sciences and the engineering sciences.
Against the background of the current and emerging developments in the field of “Artificial Intelligence” the Foundation wishes to support projects dealing with the development of new perspectives and insights with a view to shaping the future of society as well as technology.
The aim is to enable novel project constellations and interdisciplinary cooperations in a scientific and socially highly topical area through a shift in thinking towards new perspectives and solutions.
An essential challenge and at the same time a special opportunity for the participating disciplines lies in the joint development of a specific topic and the associated research issues as well as in the necessary expansion of the respective range of methods.
