The AISI is coordinated by Aïda Elamrani and Thierry Poibeau.
Since AI is a technical and complex field, it is often entrusted to the sole hands of computer scientists. However, the consequences of its applications fall under much more varied expertises (psychology, law, philosophy, etc.). It is therefore absolutely necessary to carry out multidisciplinary analyzes of the problems AI raises. This is why the initiative “AI and society” brings together researchers from different disciplines, in order to combine their perspectives and bring out more innovative, more detailed and more profound answers to the questions posed by the new uses of AI.
The initiative aims for the advancement of knowledge in the field of AI ethics, mainly through the following actions:
- Combining pluridisciplinary expertises to analyse the issues raised by AI progress, and to anticipate future developments.
- Training to decypher the challenges of the digital transformation.
- Organizing meetings to inform and educate the general public on major questions raised by the new uses of artificial intelligence.
