ALLAI joins EU-funded project Trust AI for Higher Education

We are proud to announce that ALLAI is partner in the EU-funded project “Trust AI”, that is aimed at assisting universities and higher education institutions in the implementation of the elements of trustworthy AI, i.e. lawfulness, ethics and socio-technical robustness, into their various curricula for different education disciplines. 

Higher Education must play a role in contributing to cutting-edge, safe and ethical AI. It is up to us to prepare young people with advanced programming skills, but also to prepare all students to understand the implications of AI and ensure it is put to good use.

The main objective of Trust AI, therefore, is to assist universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEI) to radically improve their AI teaching to emphasize the ethical and values-based components and to reach students from all disciplines, especially those from business, public policy and social science disciplines who will also shape how AI is deployed.

We will achieve this by introducing three resources to help HEIs introduce new teaching on this topic:

  • A Learning Framework for the teaching of Artificial Intelligence in Higher Education will define the competencies and skills related to Trustworthy AI and the learning strategies to help students gain these competencies and skills;
  • Open Educational Resources for Trustworthy AI will enable teachers to include this topic in their courses, and will include a teacher’s guide, suggested activities and multimedia material that can be used directly and interactively with students.
  • A Guide to Conducting Ethical Artificial Intelligence. Hackathons will guide teachers on how to use this innovative methodology to help consolidate students’ skills based
    on real life business and social problems.

In the international consortium consisting of Umeå University (SE), the University Industry Innovation Network (NL), the European E-learning Institute (DK), Momentum Marketing Services Ltd. (IE) and the National University of Ireland (IE), ALLAI will be leading the development of the open Educational Resources for Trustworthy AI.

The project is funded by Erasmus+, the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe.
