Background to DSI Strategy Lab 2021

The DSI Strategy Lab 2021 is investigating which civil, criminal, administrative, and international law issues the use of artificial intelligence may have in numerous application areas and how to respond to these regulatory challenges. The UZH Center for Information Technology, Society, and Law (ITSL) is closely involved in the implementation work.

The aim of the work of the 2021 DSI Strategy Lab is to create a position paper to identify the central challenges of regulating AI, to formulate the regulatory approaches and the most important contents of possible rules, and to draw up a research plan to develop concrete solutions (in the form of formulated norms or norm concepts) to these challenges. This is to be done explicitly from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The Scientific Committee of the Strategy Lab 2021 consists of the following UZH researchers:

  • Prof. Abraham Bernstein, UZH (computer science)
  • Prof. Florent Thouvenin, UZH (law)
  • PD Dr. Markus Christen, UZH (ethics)
  • Prof. Aniko Hannak, UZH (computational social science)
  • Prof. Kerstin Noelle Vockinger, UZH (law and medicine)
