In July, the IEAI signed a Letter of Intent with the Volkswagen Group Machine Learning Research Lab (Argmax AI). The letter formalized our collective effort in promoting AI Ethics by bridging the gap between high-level ethical requirements and applicable solutions. The partnership will focus on algorithmic auditing through a joint Master’s thesis project.

The Machine Learning Research Lab conducts research on machine learning and probabilistic inference, efficient exploration, and optimal control.

The Master’s Thesis focuses on the work conducted in the field of algorithmic auditing in the European organization for “ethical and trustworthy artificial and machine intelligence” (etami). Etami aims to lead on trustworthy and ethical AI by creating industry standards and piloting its certification strategies.

We are very delighted to work with the Volkswagen Group Machine Learning Research Lab and looking forward to strengthening this partnership through interesting projects!
