AI Challenges for European Research and Academia#

Venue: Imperial College, Lecture Theatre 311, Huxley Bldg. 3rd Floor, ICL, 180 Queens Gate, London SW7
Date: 4-5 Sep. 2024

In 2023, the Academia Europaea Board decided he creation of an interdisciplinary Task Force on AI (AE-TFAI) which will report a summary of recommendations for the European academic milieu and funding agencies, so that they may take the best advantage of recent developments in AI for the benefit of research and education throughout Europe. In the meanwhile, the chair of AE-TFAI also serves as an adviser on AI in "Science 20" (S20) for the forthcoming G20 2024 meeting in Brasilia. Academia Europaea provided input to a recent SAPEA Evidence Review Report on AI in Science, through a set of rapid reviews by its Cardiff Hub. Thus, the Workshop on "AI Challenges for European Research and Academia", that will be held at Imperial College on 4-5 Sep. 2024 will survey the main themes of current AI research, with leading speakers from the European Area, China and the USA, including Academia and Industry, to identify the main challenges that need to be addressed in the field.

Sponsors: Academia Europaea & CNRS Abraham de Moivre Math. Laboratory, ICL
Co-Sponsor: Foundation for Science and Technology, UK
AE Task Force on AI: Erol Gelenbe MAE (Chair), Guy Brasseur MAE, Schahram Dustdar MAE, Thomas Eiter MAE, Véronique Halloin, Alessandro Lenci
Organizing Committee:
Dan Crisan, Maths. Dept., ICL, Erol Gelenbe, Inst. Theoretical & Applied Informatics, Polish Acad. Sci., Federica Pratola, Maths.Dept. ICL
