Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Ethics
Bringing a cross-disciplinary perspective on the ethical, regulatory and legal issues relating to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital technologies, CAIDE’s research seeks to explore the impact, deployment and governance of this emerging technology across society. Their approach is to combine legal, ethical and social perspectives with technological expertise to examine the issues of these emerging technologies in a holistic manner. We will examine issues of fairness, privacy, accountability and transparency in this emerging technology to further our understanding, but also to guide the development and appropriate policy settings for effective use across society.
Led by Professor Jeannie Paterson (Melbourne Law School) and Professor Tim Miller (Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology) they address these issues in a practical and applied manner with a particularly Australian focus. Their research brings together research expertise of Melbourne Law School, the Melbourne School of Engineering, the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science at the University of Melbourne.
CAIDE’s research aims to give context to the abstract standards of AI Ethics. Currently, our research is focusing on five key themes: Trustworthy AI, Fairness and AI, Privacy and AI, Transparent AI and Accountable AI. Learn more via the CAIDE website.
