In this seminar, we will talk about the accountability of computer science in the area of artificial intelligence. Each week a student will give a presentation, in which different perspectives of accountability, ethics, fairness, and regulation are introduced, and we will discuss the topic together. The presentation should be based on literature and statements from recognized domain experts, however, it should also include an assessment of the arguments and the opinion of the presenter. Each 45-minute presentation should be single-handedly prepared by a participant using primary- and secondary literature. In preparation for the presentation, each participant will schedule a consultation with the supervisors and email a draft of the slides one week before the date of the presentation. To earn 3 ECTS points, students must hand in their slides after the presentation and a written report at the end of the semester. Additional 3 ECTS points can be earned by implementing a prototype.
