LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

After completing this course, students will:

  • Have absorbed key literature on this subject.
  • Be able to critically reflect on central concepts of the seminar.
  • Present expert knowledge in the social science related to data science to generalists.
  • Conduct scientific research on subject of data ethics and digital regulation, including AI and Blockchain Technology

Inhalt/e

With the rise of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technology come a plethora of questions connected to their ethics and regulation. Who owns the data, what can be done with it, who controls the use and misuse of data, what are the ethical implications of automatization, et cetera. This seminar will delve deeper into the question of how the digital domain regulates our daily affairs and how we in turn try to regulate the digital domain. It will embark on questions such as how Big Data has raised novel ethical questions, how data can be viewed from the perspective of science and technology studies, or how data ownership, privacy and digital identity intertwine. The seminar aims to invite the contributions of experienced researchers in the form of an interview and public discussion. For the public discussion, the students are expected to have read the literature and prepare questions.

The seminar will be built on six interactive lectures in order to prepare the student with the right bibliographical and epistemological toolkit for deeper inquiries. The second part of the SE will be conducted in a blocked format at the end of the semester. In the blocked seminar week, students contribute their own research and investigation to the seminar topic in the format of presentations which will form the basis of their seminar paper.
