The European HumanE AI Network aims to leverage the synergies between the involved centers of excellence to develop the scientific foundations and technological breakthroughs needed to shape the AI revolution in a direction that is beneficial to humans both individually and societally, and that adheres to European ethical values and social, cultural, legal, and political norms. The core challenge is the development of robust, trustworthy AI systems capable of what could be described as “understanding” humans, adapting to complex real-world environments, and appropriately interacting in complex social settings. The aim is to facilitate AI systems that enhance human capabilities and empower individuals and society as a whole, while respecting human autonomy and self-determination.

This conference aims at present and highlights the research directions, methods and results of the network’s activities, with a specific focus on our micro-projects: our  unique collaboration model that allows agile interaction between partners, interfacing related activities outside the project and easy engagement with researchers outside the consortium.

The conference will take place at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm on 16 November 2022, as a twin event with the 3rd Conference on AI for Humanity and Society (AI4HS) organised by WASP-HS in the same location on 17 November 2022. All participants are invited to attend both conferences (please note you need to register separately to the AI4HS conference).

All HumanE AI network members and collaboration partners are invited to submit a proposal for the HumanE AI conference. All micro projects (past and current) are strongly advised to submit.
