Smart traffic, ridesharing, online dating, personalized playlists on streaming platforms or job sharing platforms: For most internet users artificial intelligence (AI) is already a part of their daily lives, although they may not be aware of it.
The Policy Lab Digital, Work & Society from the BMAS has started work in October 2018. It is a new, interdisciplinary and agile organisational unit that observes technological, economic and social trends and helps to shape change together with academia, business and social partners.
»We must continue to invest in research and technology transfer on a large scale, but we must also provide orientation for the whole process and set policies to shape the strategy. In the development and use of artificial intelligence, our focus is on human beings and the benefits to society.«
Hubertus Heil, Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs
