Modeling for policy: Decision making with AI, models, and computer simulations – challenges for TA

E-Mail Adresse für Einreichungen: redaktion@tatup.de
Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers
Deadline: 05.05.2022
Name der Publikation: TATuP -- Zeitschrift für Technikfolgenabschätzung in Theorie und Praxis
Veranstaltende Institution: Karlsruher Institut für Technologie; Institut für Technikfolgenabschätzung und Systemanalyse

Models are indispensable for today’s policy making. Computer-based models, and increasingly

machine learning models, are playing an important role in decision-making. This became clear to the general public, for example, when, during the COVID-19 pandemic, forecasts of infection dynamics based on computer simulations were used to evaluate and justify policy measures for containment. Beyond this current spotlight, there are numerous contexts in which computer models provide information on the possible courses of action or even make automated decisions: examples range from

financial markets to the transformation of transportation, to policing and security, climate change and energy transition. In this Call for Abstracts, we consider the role of computational models based on machine learning or computer simulation.


Central questions:

1. How are simulation and AI models used as tools for decision-making in the context of policy

making and TA?

2. Do decisions change through the use of computer-based models?

3. Do TA recommendations change in a similar way?
