    Machine normativity

    Research in this area addresses the question how and on what basis algorithms may take normative decisions. How can we make sure that a self-driving car in case of an unavoidable accident takes the right decision between two alternative options. Advances in the area of machine learning let it appear possible that even complex balancing exercises between different legal principles could be solved through algorithmic training. In close cooperation with the technological development, this research is dedicated to an explorative and innovative issue area.
