Trustworthy Human-Centric AISpeaker: Dr. Fredrik Heintz, guest researcher at Department of Communication and Media, Lund University
The seminar is free of charge and open to students and staff at Lund university as well as to attendees from industry, public sector and the general public. Abstract: The European Union has taken the stance that AI should be trustworthy and developed in a human-centric way with the goal of improving individual and societal well-being. This talk will present the European approach to trustworthy human-centric AI and some research challenges related to it. To be trustworthy an AI-system should be lawful, ethical and robust, as defined by the European Commission High-Level Expert Group on AI. To operationalize these is a major challenge and will require new research. The second part of the talk gives an overview of the state-of-the-art and potential future solutions to these challenges.
