Our vision

Good In Tech main objectives are to create knowledge around four research areas and to contribute to the dissemination of this knowledge not only in academic and pedagogical spheres but also to corporations, decision-makers, regulators and the general public.

To this end, the Chair aims to create and develop an ecosystem of interactions between research, companies, students from the two partner academics and political institutions, civil society in order to raise awareness of all stakeholders on this new paradigm on responsible digital technologies and innovation.

The chair also aims to develop international partnerships, particularly in Europe, to share the issues of responsible digital innovation with international committees.

Finally, the Chair aims to share the results of academic works and debates it organizes with national and European political institutions in order to inform and influence public policies.

Our lines of research

Axis 1 – Responsible digital innovation: Which measures?

How to measure the two dimensions (environmental and societal impact) of responsible digital innovation?
How can responsible digital innovation indicators be integrated into CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)?

Axis 2 – How to develop technologies that are responsible "by design"?

How to avoid data bias in intelligent systems?
How to develop technologies that are more explainable, accountable, fair and that respect personal data protection rules?

Axis 3 – Reinventing the future: Which society for tomorrow in a digital world?

Which society for tomorrow in a digital world?
How to reinvent the future in a perspective faithful to the Enlightenment, preserving the principle of equality applied to the connected world?

Axis 4 – Governance of innovation and responsible technologies

What are the governance mechanisms for responsible digital innovation?
What are the relevant levels of this governance: Europe, nation, company?

28th June from 2:30PM to 5:30 PM, grand public
Content regulation on digital platform

The TransNum (digital transitions) seminar is an interdisciplinary discussion forum that brings together the Sciences Po research community working on or with digital issues. Through examples of economic, social, political, and legal transformations linked to digitization and their historical perspective, the Digital Transitions seminar provides food for thought on the impact of digital technology in all of Sciences Po's research fields

Interpretability in Artificial Intelligence

The opacity of some Machine Learning algorithms is a fundamental issue for not only the future development of AI but also society. Current Machine Learning algorithms indeed process increasingly large amounts of data, which makes it difficult to interpret their internal functioning. However, the ability to account for algorithmic decisions is a fundamental component for building a shared responsibility in AI. Many research initiatives, often called XAI, seek to explain and interpret algorithmic decisions using quantitative methods. This transdisciplinary research seminar focuses on these AI interpretation methods and the difficulty of implementing them. The speakers are Timothy Miller (Professor at the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne and co-director of the Centre of AI and Digital Ethics), Doaa Abu Elyounes (researcher at the Harvard Law of School / Sciences Po Law of School), Jean-Marie John-Mathews (researcher at University Paris-Saclay).

15th april from 1:00PM to 2:30 PM, Cycle webinar
Discrimination and hiring algorithms

The digitization of the human resources sector has been accompanied by the creation of many algorithms that now participate in the automation of certain stages of the recruitment process (CV matching, automated interview analysis, semi-automated recruitment decisions, algorithms for the recruiter-recruited relationship, etc.). These algorithms are now a source of concern because they can in some cases discriminate against categories of the population and reproduce biases already present in society. This research seminar will focus on discrimination induced by the recruitment algorithms. Three speakers will present at this seminar: Grégoire Loiseau (Professor of Law at the University of Paris 1), Houssem Hamza (CEA at Data4Job), Christine Balagué (Professor at Institut Mines Télécom Business School).

April 8th 2021, 07:15pm to 09:00pm, Cycle Futurs Pluriels - Repenser les futurs
Deep Fakes

The Good In Tech Chair invites you to its fourth Futurs Pluriels conference dedicated to Deep Fakes. We invite researchers, actors, thinkers and artists to explore a facet of our futures from different angles: approaches to the future (new approaches to foresight, science fiction as an exercise in thought, speculative design ...), science and technology ( synthetic biology, neuroscience ...),

10th March from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, Cycle webinar
What solutions to data bias in machine learning algorithms?

While artificial intelligence is more and more used, many AI incidents report data processing biases or discrimination. Good In Tech organizes a research webinar to discuss the biases of artificial intelligence. What solutions to data bias in machine learning algorithms? With Stephan Clemençon (Telecom Paris), Serge Abitboul (ENS Paris) and Julia Stoyanovich (NYU).
