How do they get smarter because of AI?
Thematic event Management of Artificial Intelligence Systems takes place within the activities of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU. The set of events will end in September in the Slovenian Digital Center and will be entirely dedicated to topics connected with artificial intelligence.
You are invited to the next event in the series of Smart Communities: How do they get smarter because of AI?
The event will take place in a hybrid form, on Tuesday, 6 July 2021 from 10:00 to 13:30 in the context of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the Slovenian Digital Center – Technology for the People.
At the event, esteemed experts will express their views and understanding of key questions from the legal, technical, research, regulatory and ethical perspectives, and open a discussion on the important question of how will smart cities be different in the future due to artificial intelligence? How will we deal with sensitive data that artificial intelligence will collect in these communities? Will communities be any smarter because of this? We will try to answer these and other similar questions at the event.
In recent years, artificial intelligence technology has become mature, widely accessible, involved in various business and social processes, and even in our private lives. At the same time, artificial intelligence represents a secret to most people and therefore creates a certain amount of discomfort and fear. The consequences of the use of artificial intelligence raise different views and opinions of stakeholders and researchers and thus also many ethical issues. The answer and solution for establishing a trustworthy artificial intelligence technology is relevant regulation and defined ethical guidelines.
Human control, security, privacy, transparency, diversity, non-discrimination, justice, environmental and social well-being, and accountability are only few of the concepts that should be key to the notion of a trustworthy artificial intelligence. The new era of artificial intelligence therefore dictates a safe and trustworthy use, which must be defined by adequate guidelines and properly regulated.
The views, understandings and opinions, which will be formed through a series of events, will be summarized in general guidelines that will serve as the basis for the trustworthy use of artificial intelligence.
The event is hosted by Tilen Obradović
