About the Project

Open Innovation Lab

for the Realization of Common Good AI Applications

Artificial intelligence will permeate all aspects of life, both work and private

Gemeinwohl­orientierte KI erfordert ein noch breiteres Spektrum an Kompetenzen

Many ideas may go unrealized due to a lack of individual skills

Projects such as the Civic Innovation Platform help implement selected ideas

The successful development of AI applications aimed at the common good requires a wide range of both technological and social skills.

All too often, great ideas go unnoticed because just some of these skills are missing.

The central goal of the project is to connect actors from different disciplines who are involved in the development of AI applications (AI = artificial intelligence) aimed at the common good and to provide them with the necessary skills, technologies and spaces to implement them in a responsible, transparent and integrative manner.

In addition, it is a concern for both the project and its implementation environment ZEKI (Center for Tangible AI and Digitalization) to provide a platform for experiencing, understanding and learning about AI technologies in order to be able to make truly informed decisions about these emerging key technologies.

Our Solution

The aim of this project is to provide a software suite consisting of frameworks and tools as well as an open innovation laboratory for the development and implementation of AI applications aimed at the common good.

The target group ranges from small start-ups to large industrial groups, research institutes and municipal organizations, as well as interested citizens.

In addition to research and development, the project also aims to organize various formats of workshops, seminars, educational offerings and public showcases to discuss and develop new AI project ideas and make AI and its applications explainable and tangible.
