Marie Schröter is a Visiting Fellow at the International Centre for the study of Radicalisation as part of her Mercator Fellowship for International Affairs. During her Fellowship Marie works on the potential and limits of artificial intelligence to identify online radicalisation without violating the right to privacy. She explores in how far AI enabled programmes could be a solution to support otherwise labour-intense tasks, analysing and predicting radicalisation processes. Aside her concerns about privacy rights she gives special emphasis to questions of data availability, quality and bias.
Marie graduated at the University of Haifa, Israel in MA Political Science/Security Studies with a thesis on the usage of Twitter by German militant Islamists. Prior, she worked three years at the think tank Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung London, covering a range of topics in the realm of European/British/German Foreign Policy. Marie worked in the German Bundestag with former Federal Minister Wolfgang Tiefensee, the German Development Cooperation GIZ in Delhi and a political consultancy. Marie volunteered for one year in India, before doing her BA Political Science at the Free University Berlin and the University of Kent, UK.
