The culture of Trustworthy AI. Public debate, education, practical learning
Island of San Servolo - Venice
The workshop organized by AI4EU Observatory on Society and AI will take place on 2-3 September 2021.
The event is part of the AI4EU project and will host a mix of invited and contributed presentations, as well as panel discussions, and will give the opportunity to share the results achieved by the AI4EU working groups on Ethical, Legal, Social, Economic and Cultural issues of AI (ELSEC AI).
In the last few years, the European Union has made important steps towards a responsible and sustainable Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovation. In 2019, the High-Level Expert Group delivered the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI and, even more recently, the European Commission put forward a proposal for a regulation to address different AI risk levels. However, these initiatives could not be sufficient to ensure Trustworthy AI.
The development of a Trustworthy AI culture poses several challenges to the whole AI ecosystem. A first issue regards how to create meaningful discussions involving different experts but also citizens and people with limited knowledge about AI and its wider implications (public debate). A second problem connects to the equipment needed to help future generations cope with the social and economic changes generated by AI and data-intensive applications (education). Finally, a third important issue relates to the capacity of AI actors to become familiar with principles, rules and the plethora of methodologies supporting ethical, legal and robust AI (practical learning).
This workshop will try to explore how we can get closer to a Trustworthy AI culture sharing investigations and good practices moving along the trajectories suggested by Trustworthy AI guidelines: public debate, education and practical learning. The event is part of the AI4EU project and will give the opportunity to share the results achieved by the AI4EU working groups on Ethical, Legal, Social, Economic and Cultural issues of AI (ELSEC AI).
The workshop will host a mix of invited and contributed presentations, as well as panel discussions, and is open to scholars and practitioners working on Trustworthy and Responsible AI. The event will be held in Venice (Italy) and streamed online to allow remote participation. Registration is free of charge.
