Profile

Jannik Zeiser studied philosophy and biology at the University Osnabrück. He completed his dual bachelor's degree with a thesis about responsibility in crash scenarios with autonomous vehicles. Thereafter, he studied Cognitive Science with a focus on philosophy and artificial intelligence. He joined an experimental study project about the acceptance of self-driving cars and wrote his master thesis about the question in which sense robot systems can be said to have agency.

Currently, Jannik Zeiser is a research assistant at the Leibniz University Hannover. He works in the interdisciplinary project "Bias and Discrimination in Big Data and Algorithmic Processing - BIAS" and is focussing his research on challenges posed by algorithmic decision making and data processing.
