2020 AI Challenge Day A Success

ART-AI successfully held its first challenge day in January this year

Students, academics and industry guests discuss AI challenges

Our AI Challenge Day on 29th January this year proved a great success, with over 80 attendees from industry, academia, and organisations such as the Church of England, Office for National Statistics and Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation.

Feedback was extremely positive, with comments from attendees describing the event as: “lots of healthy debate”, “a lively exchange of ideas and suggestions” and “a positive interaction of people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and interests”. Many of the participants were particularly impressed by the interdisciplinarity and diversity of the contributors.

Over the course of the day, many relevant challenges were identified, ranging from the need for validation and standards through to levels of trust and the assessment of risks.

Prof Joanna Bryson gives a talk before the ART-AI Challenge Day Jan 2020

The evening before, Prof Joanna Bryson of the University of Bath and the Hertie School of Governance, Berlin, set the scene with a talk on why AI is necessarily irresponsible, highlighting that responsibility lies not with the technology itself but with the humans that build, own and use it.
