The topic of the session was ''Three wrong questions about trust and artificial intelligence''.
In an effort to expand the scope of research on AI and its use in health related crises, and to further promote the Global AI Ethics Consortium, the IEAI will support four new research projects starting this fall with a total of €400,000 in funding.
In his talk on The Future of Artificial Intelligence: Academia’s Role in Getting in Right at the IEAI Speaker Series on 23 July 2020, Prof. Price stressed the importance of planning and building the needed “infrastructure” within academia to support and foster discussions around AI-related issues.
Trust in AI technology is key, according to Dr. Clara Neppel, Senior Director of the IEEE European office in Vienna. In her talk about Using Ethics Standardization and Certification for Establishing Trust in the AI Ecosystem at the IEAI Speaker Series on 18 June 2020, she elaborated on this using a currently highly relevant example: the Corona Tracing App.
The Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence - TUM took part in the public consultation on the “White Paper on Artificial Intelligence – a European Approach to excellence and trust” published on February 19, 2020 by the European Commission.
The TUM IEAI had the pleasure of having Professor Joanna Bryson give a talk at its first virtual Speaker Series session on 14 May 2020. The title of her talk was just as thought-provoking as her presentation itself Artificial Intelligence is Necessarily Irresponsible.
The TUM Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (IEAI) has announced an invitation for multi-disciplinary research proposals that seek to study and design research-based concrete and practical solutions for issues related specifically to ethics and the use of AI to manage pandemics and health-related crises.
