We are working on the Trustworthy AI Project at the moment, this is a hugely interesting project and very relevant to the times we live in.
What is artificial intelligence?
In simple terms artificial intelligence (AI) refers to a computer, robot, or another machine with the ability to mimic the capabilities of a human mind. These machines learn from experience and examples, they can recognise objects and understand and respond to language. This enables them to make decisions and solve problems. It’s all very fascinating.
Artificial Intelligence systems offer fantastic opportunities, but they can also create risks and may contravene our democratic or ethical principles in areas such as inclusion, privacy, transparency and more. Higher education must play a role in contributing to cutting-edge, safe, ethical AI and this is where the Trust AI project comes in.
The project will assist Universities to improve their AI teaching to emphasize ethical and values-based components for all students, especially those from business, public policy and social science who will ultimately shape how AI is deployed.
The first tangible results of the project will be the intellectual outputs:
IO1 The LEARNING FRAMEWORK for the teaching of Artificial Intelligence in Higher Education will define the competencies and skills related to reliable AI and the learning strategies to follow to develop the competences in students.
IO2 The OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (Trustworthy AI) will enable teachers to include this topic in their taught courses. The OERs will include a teacher’s guide, suggested activities and multimedia material that can be used directly with the students as interactive activities.
IO3 The GUIDE TO CONDUCTING Ethical Artificial Intelligence HACKATHONS will guide teachers on how to use this innovative methodology to help consolidate students’ skills based on real life business and social problems.
