Benedikt Krieger

"Hardly a day goes by on which we do not interact with technical and increasingly adaptable, intelligent systems. I find it fascinating to understand what risks but also opportunities arise from this interaction. At the iit, I gladly work on creating this underlying understanding and the resulting policy recommendations."

Focus of work

  • Assistant technologies, AI and robotics
  • Interdisciplinary reflection on socio-digital systems
  • Technology assessment
  • Data analysis and trend-scouting
