At the Social Algorithms Centre we research how to design algorithms for the computation needs of today.

Algorithms are designed for optimal use of computing time and memory. This was good enough when only trained professionals worked with computation. Today, computers are part of our society and we all interact with them. How well algorithms serve the interest and wellbeing of people also needs to be part of the algorithm design. This is what we explore at the centre.

What do the biased, opaque, unethically behaving computer programs have in common? To what degree can algorithmic interventions address fundamental social problems? We explore these questions in our centre.

The mission of the Social Algorithms Centre is impossible without the joint efforts of experts in Computer Science, Data Science, Machine Learning, Law, Ethics, and Human Behavior. We collaborate with world renowned researchers in data science, AI and machine ethics.

Education

The sustainability of science progress is reflected in our ability to train the new generation of scientists and engineers. The centre will actively contribute in integrating ethical reasoning skills into all computer science curriculum at the Informatics department at the University of Bergen and...
