Spring school on Ethics and Artificial intelligence

In fulfilment of the EELISA Board Declaration, this school aims to align technical excellence with social impact in the upcoming generation of AI researchers and developers, by combining their tekhnè with ethos.

The school program will unfold over a week of thematic days around key chapters of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI. Each day will address a specific question, thanks to lectures in the morning and practical activities in the afternoon. The five topics will be:

1) the socioeconomic impact of AI
2) EU regulations for a fair and private AI
3) explainable AI (XAI)
4) AI decision-making biases identification and AI trustworthiness assessment
5) legal liability in AI

If you applied and are selected to attend the event in person, you can inquire your local EELISA coordinators about possibilities for financial support for travel and accomodation:
