Insights on Trustworthy AI from the AI4EU workshop "The Culture of Trustworthy AI. Public debate, education, practical learning"


The widespread use of AI technologies in many business sectors has raised questions about their ethicality. In the last few years, a large part of the discourse on AI has pointed out the necessity of designing services aiming at guaranteeing the respect of ethical guidelines in the use of AI tools.

The DIH4AI project addresses this need and follows the path traced by the AI DIH Network Project, proposing a broad set of services that AI DIHs could in the future offer to their networks to tackle legal and ethical issues connected with the development and adoption of AI. 

In the context of the project, experiments are being carried out.
