We continue with a series of event’s dedicated to AI with a topic of trustworthy use of artificial intelligence. In previous ones, we talked about the role of AI in Industry 4.0 and the analysing of Media documents.

Our next event in the session of events will be dedicated to SMART SOCIETIES: How do they get smarter because of AI?

We are pleased to invite you to the first hybrid event on the topic of the series on the topics of Smart societies: How do they get smarter because of AI?? on July 6, 2021, between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in the Slovenian Digital Center venue during the Slovenian presidency of the council of the EU.

At the event, distinguished experts and stakeholders from a legal, business, technical, research, regulatory and ethical point of view will present their views, understandings on key issues and open a debate about the important question how smart cities will be different because of the AI in different in the fields such as, transport, regulating traffic system, tourism? What about the sensitive data and localization of citizens that the AI will collect in future societies, etc?

There are more questions than answers at this moment, however, in recent years, artificial intelligence becomes mature, widely available, involved in various business and social processes and throughout our private lives. At the same time, artificial intelligence represents a mystery and the consequent creation of a certain discomfort and fear. The consequences of using artificial intelligence also trigger different views of stakeholders and researchers and raise many ethical issues. The answer and solution for the trusted artificial intelligence technology are in defined ethical guidelines and the regulation of the field, without sacrifice business initiative and economic development. Human control, security, privacy, transparency, diversity, non-discrimination, justice, environmental and social well-being, accountability - just a few notions that should be a key part of the concept of trusted artificial intelligence technology.

The new era of artificial intelligence, therefore, dictates a safe and trustworthy use, which must be defined by appropriate guidelines and properly regulated

The views and understandings that will be formed through a series of events will be summarized in guidelines and will represent the basis for the trustworthy use of artificial intelligence.

The program of the event will be anounced soon.

The event will be held in English. Registration for the event will be posted on Monday June, 28, 2021. Before the event we will send a link to the event, to the email address provided.
