Interchange Forum for Reflecting on Intelligent Systems - IRIS

The SRF IRIS is an interdisciplinary research focus expanding 9 faculties and 26 institutes at the University of Stuttgart.

Purpose and Goal of IRIS

The SRF IRIS (Interchange Forum for Reflecting on Intelligent Systems) provides a platform to stimulate, develop and promote critical reflection on intelligent systems and their impact on society.

Founded in February 2021, IRIS works closely with existing clusters of excellence and provides a space for exchange across interdisciplinary and university boundaries. IRIS addresses sensitive topics such as responsible human-computer interaction, ethical and societal challenges, and the risks and benefits of automated decision-making in various fields of application, and designs integrative reflection offerings for research, study, teaching, and transfer.

SRF IRIS for Excellence

IRIS stands out from formats at other universities due to the diversity of the target group, the comprehensive range of engagement opportunities, and the collaboration with internationally renowned partners from industry, science and society. Among others, we are connected to the Cyber Valley and the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach. This transdisciplinary interchange makes IRIS truly unique!
