In two recent interviews, Nicole Langrock from KI.NRW shared more on the ethical implications of applying Artificial Intelligence (AI), while Dr. Ole Wintermann from the Bertelsmann Foundation spoke on the usage of digital tools for designing modern workplaces.

Langrock presented a white paper on the ethical application of AI, which KI.NRW has recently developed. The paper is concerned with how to design and implement AI processes that protect users and their data. The document could be used by Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) as a guideline in designing and implementing AI-based processes that are also ethical. Langrock shared best case examples, but also critical applications of AI, which have led to replications of the racism and discrimination that exist in our societies.
