Trustworthy AI Conference - 13th of February 2020 - Brussels

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to become one of the most disruptive technological developments we have ever seen. AI is already a part of our every day life, and the more we involve and start to rely on AI, the more we'll need to be able to trust the recommendations and decisions that autonomous systems, AI solutions and robots make. Because whether you call it responsible AI, ethical AI, accountable AI, explainable AI, interpretable AI, etc, trust is going to be the key success factor in making the move from human-centered over augmented intelligence to artificial intelligence.

During this one-day conference on Trustworthy AI, we look at strategies, guidelines and technologies for building trust and explainability into the AI solutions of the future. For many critical applications like recruitment, lending, credit scoring, education, health care, housing, safety, ..., people will question automated "black box" solutions how they reach their conclusions, and whether these are unbiased, ethical and trustworthy.

This conference will address both the problems and the solutions, the opportunities and the challenges of trustworthy AI solutions. Topics at this conference include, but are not limited to:

  • human-centric AI business cases,
  • toolkits and algorithms for interpretable and explainable machine learning models
  • storytelling AI solutions and managing expectations,
  • data privacy and protection issues in AI and machine learning,
  • what GDPR says about automated decision making,
  • detecting and preventing bias,
  • the upcoming laws and regulations of AI and robotics,
  • ethics in autonomous systems,
  • setting up an artificial intelligence ethics policy,
  • etc

If you are building human-centric AI applications, you should understand the associated opportunities and threats from a human-centric perspective, to ensure acceptance and deliver maximum business benefit, by building trust and explainability into your solutions.
