What is IRIS 3D?
“Reflecting Intelligent Systems for Diversity, Demography, and Democracy (IRIS3D)”, is a new IRIS project funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of the State of Baden-Württemberg (Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg)
The three IRIS3D independent research groups will develop and carry out new research programs that contribute to the reflection on the societal impacts of intelligent systems related to the theme of the project. Examples include, but are not limited to the following topics:
- Intelligent systems as empirical tools for the analysis/understanding of diversity, demographics, or democracy (3D)
- Intelligent systems as the core of applications supporting societal objectives related to diversity, demographics, or democracy (3D)
- Issues related to the use of intelligent systems in the 3D domains, e.g., bias and diversity, need to account for demographic trends, challenges for AI-supported democracy
Disciplinary scientific approaches may range, for example, from the engineering of corresponding intelligent systems, the observation and analysis of these matters by intelligent systems, or the questioning of social, philosophical, or historical conditions and effects of intelligent systems regarding these matters.
IRIS3D will be embedded in the Cyber Valley ecosystem and the interdisciplinary Stuttgart Research Focus Interchange Forum for Reflecting on Intelligent Systems (IRIS).
