Centre for Philosophy and AI Research (PAIR)

– provisional web page –

The centre for Philosophy and AI Research (PAIR lab) was established in 2022 with funding from a prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Professorship for Vincent C. Müller at the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU, est. 1742). PAIR aims to be one of the internationally leading institutions for fundamental issues of AI, both normative (ethical) and descriptive (theoretical), e.g. “What is AI, what can AI be, what should AI be? “. Our vision is to help set the agenda in the philosophy and ethics of AI, through publications, events, structures, and visible activities. Our research will generate intellectual progress in both AI and philosophy that can have deep impact towards a better society. We offer a stimulating, supportive and pleasant research environment – situated in a lively and modern workplace in the centre of beautiful Erlangen. The working language at PAIR is English.
