How can we guarantee a reliable and trustworthy development of AI in Europe? That was the focus in a keynote speech Dr. Fredrik Heintz held recently in a webinar hosted by the think tank Fores.

Dr Fredrik Heintz is a co-project leader in WASP-HS and an Associate Professor in computer science at Linköping University, Sweden, President of the Swedish AI Society (SAIS), and a member of the European Commission High-Level Expert Group on AI (AI HLEG) that published the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI in 2019. In his speech, he presented some of his work on trustworthy artificial intelligence, and experiences from the policy-work with the High-Level Expert Group on AI.

“We want AI to be human-centered. It will not be a goal in itself but rather a means to improve the situation for us, and we want the AI to be trustworthy,” says Fredrik Heintz.

The speech was followed by a panel discussion with Anas Zaza, Analyst, Institute for Politics and Society, Czech Republic and Anamaria Dutceac Segesten, senior lecturer in European Studies, Lund University.

Moderator: Dr. Stefan Larsson, as Fredrik Heintz a project leader in the WASP-HS program and Associate Professor, Lund University and affiliated researcher at the Digital society program, Fores.
