Public talks by Paul Lukowicz Humane AI Net coordinator

Our PI Paul Lukowicz gave several talks in the last couple of weeks in leading AI-venues disseminating and reflecting on the research done with the network. For example, he gave a talk in an event about “Legal Protection Debt in the ML Pipeline” organized by FARI – AI for the Common Good Institute about how to curate data in the age of AI. He also gave a keynote in the AISafety & SafeRL workshop in the 32th conference: IJCAI International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence Organization 2023. It targets the need to rethink the safety of AI systems beyond mere adherence to formal specs & and regulations, especially when it comes to interactions on societal levels.

The objective of the workshop was to define the telecommunications industry research agenda in AI. More than 10 mobile network operators (MNOs) participated from Europe and from the rest of the world (Australia, Middle East) including Axiata, O2 Germany, Orange, stc, Telefónica, Telenor, Telia, Telstra, TIM, Turkcell and Vodafone, and they came together for two days to discuss what is needed from AI in the future.

During the workshop, the Humane AI net project explained the major trends in AI research. Then, several companies shared how they are using AI currently in their operations and business practises. Finally, the respective companies explained what AI capabilities they would be interested in for the future.

This last part has been the input for the telecommunications industry AI research agenda. The agenda is available in English and Spanish.
