With the Civic Innovation Platform, the Denkfabrik Digital Work Society promotes the partnership-based development of AI applications oriented toward the common good. The goal is innovations that serve social progress and improve the work and lives of many people.
The ‘AI is what we make it’ idea contest run by the Civic Innovation Platform is entering its third round. Ideas can be submitted from today for how AI technologies can be used for societal and social progress.
The twelve most promising ideas in the Civic Innovation Platform ‘AI is what we make it!’ idea contest will be distinguished by Federal Minister of Labour Hubertus Heil at a virtual award ceremony on 8 February 2022. Join us live!
25 ideas for applications based on artificial intelligence that could contribute to the common good were recognised by Federal Minister Hubertus Heil at the award ceremony for the ‘AI is what we make it’ idea contest run by the Civic Innovation Platform.
With the Civic Innovation Platform, the Policy Lab is promoting the shared and partnership-based development of applications based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the benefit of the common good. Partners from a variety of different areas are supporting the project.
With the idea contest, the Civic Innovation Platform wants to promote ideas for AI applications that are jointly developed by people from different parts of society. The condition is that the ideas must advance social progress.
Innovation processes that advance social progress require input from many different people across society. The Civic Innovation Platform relies on the exchange between different disciplines, industries and areas.
The Civic Innovation Platform promotes the development of AI applications aimed at advancing social and societal progress from the root idea through to final implementation.
