The AI Politeia Lab is an interdisciplinary lab exploring how we can ensure a responsible and sustainable technology-enabled future; that is trustworthy, ethical and democratised for all and for the good.
Adopting a collaborative, multi-stakeholder approach and “out of the box”, anticipatory thinking, this laboratory involves researchers from various disciplines and provides a virtual “AI Politeia” environment for innovative academic and industrial research and applications across domains.
AI Politeia connects AI and technological innovation with social sciences and policy aiming to explore the opportunities, risks posed by technological innovation, and strike a balance between innovation, ethics, human rights, values, law and policy.
The Lab collaborates closely with international networks such as the Z-Inspection® assessment method for Trustworthy AI, as an affiiated lab. The Z-Inspection® approach is a validated assessment method that helps organizations to deliver ethically sustainable, evidence-based, trustworthy, and user-friendly AI-driven solutions. The method is published in IEEE Transactions on Technology and Society and it is listed in the new OECD Catalogue of AI Tools & Metrics.
