EUNIC London, the Czech Centre London and the Austrian Cultural Forum present the new EUNIC AI Science Café Series aiming to present current and timely topics alongside the proposals for innovative, bold and inspirational solutions to tackle key issues. The contributors are experts from the EUNIC member states, many of whom represent international teams and their counterparts from the United Kingdom.
The first talk invites you to learn more about the ethical impact of the use of artificial intelligence with philosophers & AI experts Janina Loh, Charlotte Stix and Dita Malečková. The virtual event will be chaired by Erin Young from The Alan Turing Institute.
Our world increasingly relies on complex automated systems, algorithmic calculations and data. We are surrounded by smart technologies and robots. AI is part of our everyday lives and shapes crucial processes in our society. It recommends us to watch a new television series, provides us with driving instructions, vacuum cleans our floors or decides what grades we get.
But how biased is AI? How can scientist ensure that AI doesn’t disadvantage or negatively impact certain communities or minorities? What legal and ethical framework is necessary to guarantee that the values implemented in robotic systems benefit everyone? And what are the opportunities?
This discussion will look at the ethical dimensions that arise with artificial intelligence and aim to give an insight into current discussions of equity and justice in AI.

EUNIC AI Science Cafe Series 2021:
Artificial Intelligence is the new phenomenon of the 21st century and has evolved out of the realm of science fiction and at best, a few technologically advanced minds and IT professionals, to everyday topics of discussion and one of the key drivers of the future progress of humankind.
The objective of the AI Science Café series, which will consist of presentations and debates by high profile, world acclaimed European and UK experts, is to introduce, present and publicly discuss various topics that impact our professional as well as our personal lives. As AI topics clearly generate more questions than answers, the series will strive to unveil trends and expectations from the inevitable social and technological changes which the future will bring.
