*Brief Write up about the session:*

Smart information systems (SIS) are systems that incorporate artificial
intelligence techniques, in particular machine learning and big data
analytics. These raise significant hopes, for example to better understand
and cure diseases, but also to revolutionise transport, to optimise
business processes or reduce carbon emissions. At the same time, they raise
many ethical and social concerns, ranging from worries about biases and
resulting discrimination to the distribution of socio-economic and
political power and their impact on democracy.

Drawing on the findings of the SHERPA project (www.project-sherpa.eu), the
presentation will suggest that one perspective to better understand these
systems and their social and ethical consequences is to use the metaphor of
an ecosystem to describe them, a metaphor already widely used in the policy
discourse on AI. The talk will analyse what the use of the ecosystem
metaphor means for the evaluation of ethical issues of smart information
systems and which conclusions can be drawn from it and how these can inform
recommendations for policymakers and other stakeholders.

The presentation is based on the material developed in a book, which is
freely available from:
