The CLAIRE Research Network unites 435 Laboratories and Institutions from 37 different countries. The goal is to foster the European research on Artificial Intelligence and to ensure a trustworthy AI that augments human intelligence rather than replacing it.
The Pontifical Academy for Life, Microsoft, IBM, FAO, the Italian Ministry of Innovation signed on February 28th, 2020, a concept document to support an ethical approach to Artificial Intelligence and promote a sense of responsibility among organizations, governments, institutions and the private sector with the aim to create a future in which digital innovation and technological progress serve human genius and creativity and not their gradual replacement.
The Artificial Intelligence Doctoral Academy (AIDA) is a joint initiative consisting of 5 ICT48 projects funded by the European Commission (AI4media; Vision, Humane AI Net, Elise, Taylor). It aims to support a worldwide education and research program on Artificial Intelligence, attract the best doctoral students present in Europe, and foster the dissemination of AI skills and expertise. AIDA counts more than 55 Universities and 18 Research Centers and Industrial Representatives. Besides the Università Cattolica, eight Italian universities are members of AIDA.
- AI4EU: Established in 2019 with the support of the European Commission. The European AI-on-demand platform seeks to facilitate the transfer of AI knowledge and technology from research to different business sectors. AI4EU aims to create value, growth, and jobs in Europe. The platform acts as a catalyst to help AI-based innovation: new products, services, and solutions that benefit European industry, commerce, and society. Participants seek to address the fragmentation of the European AI framework. The five thematic areas of AI4EU research are Explainable AI, Verifiable AI, Physical AI, Collaborative AI, Integrative AI.
- European AI Alliance: It is a multi-stakeholder forum engaged in a broad and open discussion on all aspects of AI development and its impact on the economy and society. You can publish materials and opinions, contributing directly to the European debate on AI and supporting the European Commission. There are several sections available: Blog (information on the Commission's work on AI); Forum (you can raise AI-related topics and engage in open discussions); Documents (collection of public documents on AI); Open Library (repository of all kinds of reports and documents on AI); Events (overview of upcoming meetings and events on AI).
The non-profit scientific Association promotes research and dissemination of Artificial Intelligence techniques, encouraging their teaching through seminars and other targeted initiatives. There are eight working groups within the Association: agent and multiagent systems; artificial intelligence and ageing; artificial intelligence for cultural heritage; robotics; machine learning and data mining; knowledge representation and automatic reasoning; natural language processing; argumentation.
