The Responsible Sensing Lab is an initiative by AMS Institute (Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions) and the City of Amsterdam.
One of AMS Institute’s programs is the Responsible Urban Digitization program. This program researches, develops and integrates smart technologies to help solve urban challenges. The Responsible Sensing Lab can be seen as the testbed for this program: the Lab facilitates the conducting of rigorous, transparent, and replicable research on how smart technologies placed in public space can be designed in a way that makes the digital city ‘responsible’.
At the City of Amsterdam, the Responsible Sensing Lab is embedded in the Digital City Program as part of the CTO Innovation Department. In order to enhance safety, sustainability and livability the use of smart technologies by the City increases. The Responsible Sensing Lab researches how social values such as privacy, inclusion, and autonomy can be integrated in the design of smart technology.
