Facebook has decided to do a joint study with the Technical University of Munich for research on social networking, an independent ethical artificial intelligence. The Ethics Institute of Artificial Intelligence will able to investigate subject such as fairness, confidentiality, security and transparency, which the industry can not alone answer.
Facebook will give a 7.5 million grant for the next five years and share their findings with the university. Dr. Christoph Lütge from the Mtü will head the Institute with the help of the academic community, the business life and advisory board of civilian persons.
The new research center will be free to publish its work. It can cooperate with other institutions and experts from outside.
The idea of setting up this institute emerged with Facebook dealing with ethical issues related to its own artificial intelligence. People accused the artificial intelligence of Facebook to be politically prejudiced.
