Abstract Text Our society is full of rules: rules authorize us to achieve our goals by endowing us with legitimation, they provide the necessary structure to understand the chaos of conflicting indications or tell-tales of a situation, and oftentimes they legitimate our actions. But rules in society are different than logical rules suggest to be: they are not as unshakeable, continuously renegotiated, often even accepted to be wrong but still used, and used as inspiration in the situated context rather than universal truth. Based on theories about the role of technology in society, this talk will first try to convey the role of rules in social science theory. Extending these insights, it will draw on examples to illustrate how they might be transferred to computer science or artificial intelligence to derive systems that are attuned to the role of rules in social environments and adhere to social rules in the environment in which they are used.
