Course: Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence
Hours: about 20
Teachers: Luca Oneto <email@example.com>
Schedule: held in 2023 and will be held again in 2025
Exam: Small presentation (max 30 min) on how the concepts presented in the course ca be used/extended during the student PhD.
It has been argued that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is experiencing a fast process of commodification. This characterisation is of interest for big IT companies, but it correctly reflects the current industrialization of AI. This phenomenon means that AI systems and products are reaching the society at large and, therefore, that societal issues related to the use of AI and Machine Learning (ML) cannot be ignored any longer. Designing ML models from this human-centered perspective means incorporating human-relevant requirements such as reliability, fairness, privacy, and interpretability, but also considering broad societal issues such as ethics and legislation. These are essential aspects to foster the acceptance of ML-based technologies, as well as to be able to comply with an evolving legislation concerning the impact of digital technologies on ethically and privacy sensitive matters.
