15.40 - 16.05 Data ethics – what does it mean, and how shall we adress it in SCIENCE?
by professor Peter Sandøe and associate professor Sune Holm
As AI systems increasingly affect our life and the surrounding society, the need for ethical guidelines is becoming still more outspoken. In our presentation we focus on those things, which data ethics should either promote or protect us from. We discuss how the development and application of AI in decision making gives rise to rethinking concepts such as privacy, transparency and responsibility. Moreover, we present our recommendations as to how companies and researchers can contribute to shaping the ethical agenda for AI. 
16.05 - 16.30 Algorithmic decision making in the public administration - and ethics 
by professor Thomas Hildebrandt, head of Section,  Software, Data, People & Society
Case management in public administration is all about humans and decision making. Complex collaborative decisions. Simple decisions made by individuals or machines. And everything in between. In the presentation we discuss challenges and ethical questions in human and algorithmic decision making in public administration as researched in the Grand Solutions project.
