Background

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.

Time Speaker Description
1:00 to 4:30 pm Dr. Julian Wörmann

Background

Experts agree that artificial intelligence is as disruptive as electricity or the Internet. But what does that mean for you and your mid-sized company? Which use cases are really relevant for you? And what do you need to do to actually implement them? We would like to discuss these questions with you again this year and provide answers.

The aim of the event is to accompany small and medium-sized companies in particular as they enter the field of artificial intelligence. The benefits and potentials of the technology for your company will be highlighted, and entrepreneurs who have already successfully tackled the topic of artificial intelligence will show how AI can succeed.

Expect leading AI experts and users to share their knowledge with you, contacts to support you with your projects and questions, and interactive formats where you can learn how to harness the potential of AI for your business today.

We are announcing Deep Tech Momentum; the go-to conference for deep tech enthusiasts and founders in the early startup stages.

This event is designed to

👉 help you find co-founders,

👉 build your business faster through mentorship and

👉 receive world-class fundraising advice.

Techstars Berlin, RWTH Aachen, German Entrepreneurship and Audi Denkwerkstatt are designing this next level European experience in collaboration with the industry’s most innovative Deep Tech experts and top Deep Tech VCs.

Deep Tech Momentum aims to connect the best European early stage deep tech founders with potential co-founders and investors. With our first conference we aim to accelerate and connect 25+ top deep tech startups and 50+ "deep tech enthusiasts".

Interested? Or know any Deep Tech enthusiasts or founders? Check out the website.

This was the EU-funded HumanE-AI-Net project brings together leading European research centres, universities and industrial enterprises into a network of centres of excellence. Leading global artificial intelligence (AI) laboratories will collaborate with key players in areas, such as human-computer interaction, cognitive, social and complexity sciences. The project is looking forward to drive researchers out of their narrowly focused field and connect them with people exploring AI on a much wider scale. The challenge is to develop robust, trustworthy AI systems that can ‘understand’ humans, adapt to complex real-world environments and interact appropriately in complex social settings. HumanE-AI-Net will lay the foundations for designing the principles for a new science that will make AI based on European values and closer to Europeans.

Background

Objectives:
Human Centric AI should be beneficial to individuals and the society as a whole, trustworthy, ethical and value-oriented, and focused on enhancing user’s capabilities and empowering them to achieve their goals.

Human Centric AI requires new approaches to train current and future actors in AI, human-machine interaction, cognitive science and the social sciences. These approaches are central to HumanE AI Net and should be now translated into Human Centric AI curricula that could be used to derive local curricula.

The focus of this workshop is the design of coherent Human Centric AI curricula by defining disciplines, strategies, methods and learning outcomes aligned with the needs of the society

Tuesday 14. June 2022 Workshops, Tutorials and other Events

Background

HHAI-2022 workshops will provide a platform for discussing Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence in more informal settings and for a broad audience. We invite proposals for full-day and half-day events during the two days leading up to the main conference. Registration for the main conference is expected, arrangements for non-traditional conference attendees can be requested.

The goal of workshops is to bring together academics, professionals and users of technology to better understand the socio-technical benefits, risks and limitations that artificial intelligence has when interacting with humans from different perspectives. Thus we encourage workshops presenting broad concepts of human-artificial intelligence interaction or specific cases. We invite submissions for events that foster cross-disciplinary interaction, scientific discourse, and creative and critical reflection, rather than just being mini-conferences. To do so, we offer organizers flexibility for format that best suit the goals of their event. We especially welcome submissions of communities that are usually not featured prominently in artificial intelligence events and conferences.
