Ideas Development Workshop - AI & Society Workshop call


11/09/2018 - 11/09/2018


10:00AM - 12:00PM


Seminar Room, R&E, 63 University Road



An open event for research interested in collaborating on an AI in Society Workshop Proposal

The goal of this event is to bring together researchers and/or their partners with the aim of stimulating debate on ideas that may be taken forward to workshop proposals. 

The International Call for AI & Society Workshops call aims to support the development of international collaborations that bring together interdisciplinary perspectives, including the social sciences, humanities, law, engineering, computer science and the arts with policymakers and innovators. This scheme is led by CIFAR in Canada in partnership with CNRS in France and UKRI.

The joint workshops will provide funding and support that brings together new teams that propose to explore the ethical, social, legal, and economic potential impacts of AI developments and an associated research agenda. there are four key themes that this call expects to address: Working in AI Environments, International Governance of AI; Safety and Privacy of AI; Human Enhancements.

Successful projects are expected to be highly collaborative, drawing on interdisciplinary approaches and must involve a collaborative team involving researchers from at least two of the partner countries. In addition, there must be at least one participant from each of the partner countries at the proposed workshop(s) as well as participants for further afield.

Importantly this call will not fund research - but instead is expected to lead to the development of a research agenda that may be taken forward through subsequent projects

Further detail on the aims of this call and the expectations of the funders will be discussed at the event and can be found here: 

The AHSS Research Development team will facilitate this workshop and support any project ideas that result from the event.
