Centre for Philosophy and AI Research (PAIR)
The centre for Philosophy and AI Research (PAIR) was established in 2022 with funding from a prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Professorship (Prof. Vincent C. Müller) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU, est. 1742). PAIR will be one of the internationally leading institutions in the ethics of AI and philosophy of AI. Our research and activities aim to have deep impact towards a better society through intellectual progress in both AI and philosophy. Our themes are fundamental issues of AI, both normative (ethical) and descriptive (theoretical). Our vision is to set the agenda in the philosophy and ethics of AI, through publications, events, structures, and visible activities.
The initial team at PAIR will be 3 research fellows, 1 visiting fellow, 4 PhD students, 1 manager, 1 secretary and 1 professor. We are planning to grow with additional funding and a perspective for permanent contracts. We offer a stimulating, supportive and pleasant research environment – situated in a lively and modern work environment in the centre of beautiful Erlangen. The working language at PAIR is English.
