PIAI-Workshop-Public interest AI

AI and the Public Interest Workshop

The Alexander von Humboldt Institute für Internet and Society kindly invites to the AI and the Public Interest Workshop organised by the AI & Society Lab. The event will be held on Monday, June 13, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. at the Institute’s premises, Französische Straße 9, 10117 Berlin. The workshop will be held in English.

The use of artificial intelligence for the public interest is repeatedly formulated as a central goal in political AI strategies, guidelines and government funding measures, as well as in projects from commercial enterprises. However, it is still unclear whether and, above all, how the public interest orientation of AI applications can be realised and how it can be checked. This workshop brings together academic and practitioner experts along with researchers from the HIIG for a mutual exchange on the topic, including identifying major challenges and underlying requirements for public interest projects.
