Vincent Müller is a pioneer in the young discipline of the philosophy and ethics of artificial intelligence (AI) and a mediator between the humanities and technology. Prof. Müller aims to develop a guiding vision for ‘human-centred AI’ in Germany. As a Humboldt professor at FAU, Prof. Vincent C. Müller hopes to bridge the gap between technical know-how and expertise in the humanities and to reach out beyond the university to industry and public administration. He will be responsible for establishing a new international and interdisciplinary Centre for Philosophy and AI Research (PAIR), the future hub for AI philosophy at FAU.
