As technology becomes an increasing part of our daily lives and society, we need digital architects and leaders who understand and can navigate ethical challenges. Algorithms alone cannot solve the ethics of artificial intelligence, nor will the quantum revolution emerge from nothing.

At the University of Helsinki, we are conducting multidisciplinary research and educating the architects of our future, to help build an ethical digital world. Our research and innovation ranges from the datafication of society to ethical AI, and from quantum technology, to space.
