Shaping the Ethical Dimensions of Smart Information Systems

What are the ethical and human rights implications of Smart Information Systems?

SHERPA is an EU-funded project which analyses how AI and big data analytics impact ethics and human rights. In dialogue with stakeholders, the project is developing novel ways to understand and address these challenges to find desirable and sustainable solutions that can benefit both innovators and society.
