About the event

On its mission to strengthen dialogues between stakeholders that drive innovations on artificial intelligence (AI), data, and robotics, FARI – AI for the Common Good Institute is set to hold its very first International Conference on “AI, Data, and Robotics for the Common Good”.

In recent years, researchers, international organizations, policy makers, and NGOs have published many reports advocating for a responsible use of Artificial Intelligence, Data or Robotics. Numerous organizations were created to promote AI (or Data) for Good, for Society, for Humanity, etc. Beyond nice intentions and beautiful words: how does it actually translate into practice? How should these technologies be implemented to address pressing challenges (like the climate crisis, humanitarian conflicts, and health crisis) while respecting fundamental rights and ethical safeguards? This international conference will seek to spark essential conversation in defining “AI for Common Good” and in how this can be realized in the current realities of Brussels, Belgium, and beyond.

During this two-day in-person event, world-leading AI/Data/Robotics researchers, experts, policy-makers, and advocates will gather to showcase promising local and international projects, and discuss current technical trends and challenges. Through this, we aim to inspire and stir actionable response from institutions ​in creating a Brussels AI framework that is sustainable, inclusive, and comprehensive.

What are we going to convene about?

The conference content will focus on the following big themes on AI, Data, and Robotics:

The challenges of defining AI, Data and Robotics for the Common GoodDAY 1 - Session 2

On the first day of the conference, we aim to drive the discussion on how AI, data, and robotic technologies could be developed in the service of widely shared ethical ideas. On this plenary session, we will pick the brains of local and international experts on finding how institutions should respond to strike a balance in defining what is “Good for All” through interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogues.

Can AI be transparent and fair? A legal perspectiveDAY 2 - Session

In this session, we will look through the socio-legal and computer scientific perspectives in the search for ways to increase accountability of high-risk AI systems. How do we ensure that we develop technologies with end-to-end transparency and fairness? How do we ensure that AI, Data, and Robotics made in Brussels and in Europe in general do not lead to systematic disadvantages for marginalized individuals and groups?

Are robots sustainable?DAY 2 - Session 2

In this session, we aim to answer the grand question of how AI, data, and robotics could help meet humanities’ needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, not only in terms of natural resources but also on a social- and economic- level.

How to involve and mobilise citizens more around AI, Data and Robotics?DAY 2 - Session 2

In this session, we seek to stir the discussions in two-fold: (a) how can AI be a tool for citizen awareness and democratic participation? And (b) how can public engagement improve research and developments in AI?
