Combining expertise from Melbourne Law School, the School of Computing and Information Systems and the Faculty of Arts, the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Ethics (CAIDE) will bring interdisciplinary insights to AI and digital ethics with a uniquely Australian focus.
CAIDE will conduct interdisciplinary research and teaching, lead public engagement and debate, support emerging researchers, and collaborate with national and international industry and university partners to promote understanding and expertise in AI and Digital ethics.
CAIDE seeks to:
- facilitate multidisciplinary research, teaching and leadership in the fields of AI and digital ethics
- assist government, business and other organisations in holding themselves to the highest standards of ethics and equity in their use of new digital and AI technologies
- promote the fair, safe and accountable introduction, use, regulation and evaluation of AI and digital technologies
- ensure that University of Melbourne graduates and community have the insight, knowledge and expertise to engage with these issues
The activities of CAIDE revolve around four themes: fairness, accountability, transparency and privacy. CAIDE will lead research, teaching and engagement on these themes, addressing each in the context of particular challenges and opportunities presented in Australia.
