On 22nd of July 2019, ADEMED was accepted as Member of the European Artificial Intelligence Alliance.
The European AI Alliance is a multi-stakeholder forum for engaging in a broad and open discussion of all aspects of AI development and its impact on the economy and society. It is steered by the High-Level Expert Group on AI (AI HLEG), which consists of 52 experts who have been selected by the Commission for this task. The AI HLEG will focus on two main deliverables, for which input from the members of the European AI Alliance will be sought:
(1) It will prepare draft AI ethics guidelines, which will offer guidance on how to implement ethical principles when developing and deploying AI, building on the work of the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights; and
(2) It will make mid- and long-term policy recommendations on AI-related challenges and opportunities, which will feed into the policy development process, the legislative evaluation process and the development of a next-generation digital strategy.
The AI Alliance membership is a new and exciting way for ADEMED to debate its ideas in advanced technology for all and its concepts that ground the proposals we elaborate for EU Horizon 2020, projects that usually include a strong AI dimension, no matter the domain- ranging from Fairy Tales datafication to use in the study of the natural and man-made disasters.
