Judith Simon ist Professorin für Ethik in der Informationstechnologie an der Universität Hamburg und hat zuvor im In- und Ausland zu Themen aus der Philosophie, Wissenschaftstheorie und Technikfolgenabschätzung geforscht. Sie beschäftigt sich vor allem mit der Verschränkung ethischer, erkenntnistheoretischer und politischer Fragen im Kontext von Big Data, KI und Digitalisierung. Judith Simon ist Mitglied des Deutschen Ethikrats, sowie zahlreicher weiterer Gremien der wissenschaftlichen Politikberatung. Sie war auch Mitglied der Datenethikkommission der Bundesregierung (2018-2019). Im Juni 2020 erschien ihr Routledge Handbook of Trust and Philosophy.

Im Vordergrund ihrer Arbeit steht die ethische Perspektive auf die Entwicklung von KI und Big Data und stellt daher einen wichtigen Bestandteil unserer Panel-Diskussion dar.

Sie denkt über das Konferenzthema: “Technologie kann die Welt nicht retten. Aber Technikgestaltung ist immer auch Gesellschaftsgestaltung. Deswegen sollten Technologien nicht nur aus technischer sondern auch ethischer Sicht gut sein.”

How do GDPR and other Privacy Laws impact the Online Advertising Market? – Impulse Session

Regulators all over the world stronger protect privacy of consumers with consequences for online advertising that used to rely on personal data and machine learning to better target advertising. This presentation uses the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to illustrate these con-sequences for the various actors of the online advertising industry. It shows how the industry uses the Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) to comply with privacy requirements and outlines the challenges that arise if actors of the market do not agree on such standards and do not harmonize their activities under such standards. It also emphasizes that market power increases for those actors with direct contact to users. The ability of some actors to bundle consent of users to the use of personal data with the use of a particular service also benefits them.

“The Feeling Economy–How Artificial Intelligence Is Creating the Era of Empathy” – Impulse Session

Artificial intelligence (AI) is profoundly changing our world, in ways that are not yet well-understood, because of the implicit (and wrong) assumption that all AI is about thinking intelligence. If we realize that there are multiple intelligences, of differing difficulty for AI, and that this is what drives the order of AI development, then we start to understand how this will change the balance between AI and HI (human intelligence). As we are in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic, public health scientists warn that such pandemics are likely to become more numerous, due to human encroachment of the natural world, increased global travel, and crowded cities that facilitate the spread of such viruses. The response to all of this is likely to an increased use of AI by everyone. This implies that HI will need to emphasize empathy more, to make up the loss of human contact, and to be more tolerant and understand each other more.
