AiTech is the TU Delft mission-oriented science, design and engineering initiative on the future of autonomous technology and human responsibility in digital societies. Digitalization is driven by technologies and socio-economic impact of, for instance, data science, artificial intelligence, robotics and the internet-of-things.
With the pervasive trend towards autonomous and intelligent digital systems, AiTech positions TU Delft as a university where new digital artefacts are designed and engineered that are under meaningful human control, in this way stimulating innovation of beneficial digital products, services and societal developments.
AiTech research focuses on what meaningful human control implies in the practice of design, engineering and building such interfaces, algorithms and systems, both from a (guiding) theoretical and a practical design and engineering point of view. An interdisciplinary approach, encompassing science, engineering, design and ethical and societal elements, is taken to tackle this significant challenge.
