The Observatory on Society and Artificial Intelligence (OSAI) is part of the European project AI4EU and its main aim is to act as a clearinghouse for information and research on the Ethical, Legal, Socio-Economic and Cultural (ELSEC) issues in the development and deployment of AI technologies across the Europe.
OSAI's mission is best described by the following objectives:
- to simulate reflection and discussion on the ELSEC values that are at stake in the development of AI within Europe
- to provide resources to educate the general EU public more accurately about the state of the art in AI and its effects on society
- to support networking activities among experts and practitioners that promote the European values in AI with EU
