God, the Oracle, and the Nightclub Bouncer: Can human dignity be modelled in an AI-based decision support system for post-Covid health certification

Funder: ESPRC Network Plus SPRITE+

Date: 2020 – 2021

Funding: £50,000

Partner: Birmingham City University, King’s College London, Cardiff University, University of Exeter,  Trilateral Research Ltd.

In this project we investigate the possibility of modelling the impact of AI or Machine Learning system on human dignity. This is within the research field of human-centred machine learning, and it is less studied than related topics such as trust, expandability, bias, and transparency. To make machine learning model human dignity aware, it is important to measure it quantitatively. This is a inter-disciplinary project with researchers from law, computer science, population health, and business. More details are on the project page.
