EthicAI=FORUM is a virtual event, open to the public to conclude the 2021 edition of the EthicAI=LABS project. Save the date, 18th November, to join us for a day of keynotes and discussions, along with an exciting art program.In the past months the participants of the EthicAI=LABS project researched AI and ethics and their intersections in the context of linguistics, creativity, bias and media. The synergy between specialists with different backgrounds – artists, lawyers, academics, researchers – has resulted in artworks, chatbot algorithms, research papers and more. On 18th November we’re giving them the floor to present their collaborative works to you and to elaborate on their understanding of AI’s role in our everyday lives. How has their understanding of the ethical implications of artificial intelligence changed in the course of the project? What are their takeaways from the multidisciplinary approach to the topic? Join us at the EthicAI=FORUM and find out.Along with the groups’ collaborative works presented both on stage and in a virtual expo, we invite you to hear from leading EU experts in AI and Ethics like Gry Hasselbalch, artists exploring the human – machine relationship, and more.
