Moral considerations is one of the things that a safe computer system must be able to handle in the future, according to Erik Sandewall, professor emeritus at LiU.
A man ahead of his time who made important contributions to computer science and who was ever willing to share his knowledge. The description is that of Harold “Bud” Lawson, founder of a scholarship at Linköping University.
Erik Sandewall became Sweden’s first professor working in artificial intelligence. He created a broad undergraduate programme designed to promote AI at Linköping University.
The AIICS division is part of the Department of Computer and Information Science. The main focus of interest for the division is research and teaching in artificial intelligence, its theoretical foundations and its applications.
The Department of Computer and Information Science is one of the largest departments in northern Europe in its field. Research activity covers artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, software and computer systems, and data science.
