HUMAINT – Human behaviour and Machine INTelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) systems impact on human behaviour.

HUMAINT aims to provide an understanding of AI in different contexts. It looks at the impact of

  • algorithms on decision making in criminal justice
  • AI on the tasks we do at work
  • social robots on child development
  • AI on music and culture

This project, focused on the governance of digitally transformed human societies, aimed to provide a deeper understanding of the key challenges European society will face over the next decades, understanding data as a decisive ingredient.

It had two main streams of work related to the following questions

  • is there a European way to digital transformation? What should it look like?
  • what are the new forms and scales of governance enabled by digital transformation?

DigiTranScope reflected and responded to society's current challenges in a global context, by bringing together key researchers and thinkers from around the world to explore the deep transformations, triggered by the adoption and adaption of digital technologies in public and private institutions at multiple levels.

CEPAM - Centre of Expertise on Population and Migration

The study aimed to dispel some common misconceptions around migration. It examined the role of migration, fertility and morality and levels of education and labour participation.

The key messages of the study are

  • we are living longer and more productive lives
  • a smaller, better-educated labour force on the horizon
  • higher immigration volumes would increase labour force size, but much less than the essential ratio of workers-to-non workers
