Digital Society public lecture by Dr. des. Angela Müller
Head of AlgorithmWatch CH, Head of Policy & Advocacy at AlgorithmWatch

Algorithmic systems and so called „Artificial Intelligence" often come with big aspirations. They promise nothing less than to combat climate change or to bring about social equality. But what challenges can the systems themselves, their development and deployment, mean for human rights and democracy? And in what way is the debate on algorithms and AI crucially related to questions of power and justice in our society?

Angela Müller heads the work of AlgorithmWatch CH and of AlgorithmWatch’s Policy & Advocacy team. Her policy focuses include the international level (Council of Europe), the EU level (AI Act) and the domestic level in Switzerland. She has testified as an expert before the German Bundestag and the Swiss Parliament and is a member of expert working groups at the Council of Europe and the Data Science Competence Centre at the Swiss Federal Administration.
