People’s lives are increasingly dominated by digital processes. Algorithms and artificial intelligence today evaluate claims in insurance companies or make the pre-selection of applicants in the personnel search process. But do such systems work without prejudice? Do they make a selection based on morally justifiable criteria? Can people trust applications and IT systems that make increasingly autonomous decisions? For CHANCEN eG, the question of ethics and moral action is at the heart of its mission. Finally, the young company takes care of the opportunity-based and solidaric financing of education. T-Systems MMS was asked for help to investigate the solutions used in terms of digital ethics.
"The comprehensive assessment of T-Systems MMS has helped us a lot.
Now we know where we stand and have concrete starting points for how we can also reflect
and further expand our social responsibility in our IT."

CHANCEN eG is a social enterprise that sees itself as a solidarity community for the financing of education. The aim is to reduce financial barriers to education and to enable education regardless of financial background. The purpose of the enterprise, which is organised as a cooperative, is to achieve, together with its community, the best possible promotion of the social and economic interests of its members. CHANCEN eG relies on the reverse generation contract. Graduates subsequently pay back their funding according to their income, in order to enable the next generation of students to study.
