Course price: 950 Euros

22 hours of class per week, 3 ECTS credit points, max. 20 participants

Registration deadline: June 6th, 2020



The course "Fairness in Artificial Intelligence‚ÄĚ addresses social problems at the interface of artificial intelligence, fair division, economy and computer science. The main goal of this course is to give to students the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art research projects that integrate fairness concepts in various fields of AI.

Learning Goals and Syllabus


The aim of this course is to train students on basic research skills that are often not in the prime focus of a regular university course. On successful completion of the course, students will be able to

  • develop mathematical models (with real-world features),
  • describe and design (efficient) algorithms,
  • write a scientific report/paper,
  • analyze properties of algorithms (e.g. complexity, characterizations, etc.),
  • develop their critical thinking,
  • learn to share the workload and responsibility, and
  • work in (research) teams.
