Welcome to the Responsible Digital Society Research Network

The network focuses on the digital transformation and its social, ethical, legal, economic, psychological, and political consequences. We seek to strengthen the critical interdisciplinary dialogue on these topics inside and outside the University of Basel. Furthermore, we want to promote the scientific exchange on artificial intelligence, data-driven research (data science), and their applications. We network with other facilities at the University of Basel. In addition, we would like to create a critical mass for participation in national and international initiatives.
