LIAS welcomes international fellows for an exchange with the Leuven working group on ‘Reporting and Artificial Intelligence' in autumn 2022. Several renowned scientists working in the field of AI and/or Journalism will be collaborating with that working group on a position paper. Amongst those are Sophie Zhang (one of the first whistleblowers of Facebook), Virginia Dignum (professor of Social and Ethical AI at Umea University and author of “Responsible Artificial Intelligence”) and Joanna Bryson (professor of Ethics and Technology at Hertie School in Berlin). They will talk about their experience with and within (Big) Tech and will afterwards go in debate with the audience. The evening will be moderated by Prof. Katleen Gabriels of Maastricht University, the author of “Onlife. How the digital world determines your life” and “Rules for robots. Ethics in the Times of AI ”.
