Webinar – AI in the EU: A Keynote with Dr Fredrik Heintz

Day: 14 May 2020, 16:00-17:00 CET

Location: Youtube.com/tankesmedjanfores

There is little doubt that artificial intelligence offers great potential for companies, individuals and governments. Yet recent scholarship underscores the fear that the adoption of AI in society will be slower if it is perceived as untrustworthy. A lack of transparency in algorithmic decision-making may lead to limits to citizens’ rights and to the manipulation of voters. How can we guarantee a reliable and trustworthy development of AI in Europe?

As part of the European Liberal Forum project AI in the EU – Towards a trustworthy development of artificial intelligence, supported by Fores, Dr Heintz will present some of his work on trustworthy AI, and his experiences from the policy-work with the European Commission’s High-Level Expert Group.

The webinar will be moderated by Dr Stefan Larsson, associate professor in technology and social change at Lund University, Sweden, and affiliated researcher at Fores and PI for the ELF-project.

Dr Heintz is an Associate Professor in computer science at Linköping University, Sweden, President of the Swedish AI Society (SAIS), and a member of the European Commission High-Level Expert Group on AI (AI HLEG) that published the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI in 2019.
