On the 23rd of March, the European Parliament will host an online event to discuss the new challenge and ethical issues arising from the development and deployment of AI through the experiences of three major European projects: SIENNA, SHERPA, and PANELFIT. You can find more information below or on the webpage. Registration for the event is possible on the site.
In view of the upcoming legislative proposal on ΑΙ and its ethical aspects, the event will seek to identify which issues and challenges of AI are in need of particular attention. It will also discuss ways to address those challenges and build on what was learned through the AI debate to better prepare for the next wave of scientific and technological advances, and ensure that these are beneficial to society and their risks are addressed early.
Three major EU-funded projects, SIENNA, SHERPA, and PANELFIT, representing a €10m investment in research from the European Commission to develop governance structures sensitive to ethical and human rights concerns in relation to emerging technologies, are coming together to discuss their findings and provide the context for a discussion on the policy options for the ethical governance of disruptive technologies.
