WideHealth Winter School on Trustworthy AI

“Artificial Intelligence is the new electricity.” ~Andrew Ng. The world is changing rapidly, and digitalization is increasingly important, especially in industrial and health applications. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of our everyday lives. More urgently, it has the potential to radically change our way of life. We already use many AI-driven services. For example, in recommending movies, overcoming language barriers, or detecting diseases. This is just the beginning; AI will likely accompany and determine our everyday lives in almost every area.

However, such a significant change is inherently accompanied by skepticism and fear. “The real question is, when will we draft an artificial intelligence bill of rights? What will that consist of? And who will get to decide that?” ~Gray Scott. Who is liable in a world of autonomous driving if something goes wrong? Who is accountable for a misdiagnosis that could be the difference between life and death? How fair can an AI-based criminal justice system be? This inevitably leads us to the fact that we need to talk about ethics in an AI-driven society.

The WideHealth Winter School addresses these and many more questions with expert talks, open discourse, a student competition, and potential solutions. We offer hands-on activities alongside lectures and panel discussions. Students will have the chance to participate on a coding challenge on Federated Learning and demonstrate their gained knowledge. Join us at the Hasso Plattner Institute for the Thematic School on Trustworthy AI from March 13 to March 17, 2023. Registration is free of charge, but mandatory. Places are limited. If you are interested in the impact of Artificial Intelligence on our future, join us!
