Announcing our first Human Centered AI Masters Webinar Series
We are super excited to announce the commencement of our “Human Centered AI Master Series” – A European Union CEF Funded Project. In this multi-part Webinar series, we will be talking with various industry leaders, academics, AI experts, ethicists, policy makers and social scientists covering variety of topics related to human centered AI.
We will discuss about the technological advancements of AI – from automation of mundane and repetitive tasks to making breakthrough discoveries in genetics, material sciences, predicting climate events. We will also discuss about the Human Centered AI Masters that we are developing – how it is constructed and what it aims the learners to equip with so they can lead with responsibility in this AI pervasive era.
On the 7th October 2021 @ 13:00 hrs CET (+1 UTC), we will be launching our very first webinar where Tarry Singh (CEO, deepkapha AI Lab & Real AI B.V.) will be speaking with Dr. Stefan Leijnen, Professor of research group Artificial Intelligence at HU of Applied Sciences, Utrecht.
They will discuss about how HCAI Masters project came into existence, why it is needed, when is it launching and most importantly, how this European HCAI Masters program will be different from the rest. They will also probe into the following topics:
The Human Debt of AI – Can we put the Human back in the loop with AI?
There is a lot of talk about the technical debt of information systems, as more systems are penetrating inside enterprises but there is no serious discussion around the cost of this pervasive technology on the well-being of humans – meaning us!
There is no industry in the world today which does not have a human and technology working in tandem, but the pertinent question remains: Who is in control? Who or What is gaining control? And how can we ensure that we bring back human ingenuity that responsibly works with machines and that ensures that machine decisions originate from systems that are ethical, explainable and interpretable by design.
Who can steer such a complex change inside organization? What skills must they possess?
While many of the current courses in the field of AI still focus on the academic and technological aspects of artificial intelligence, a new approach is needed where, in addition to these aspects, there is also a clear focus on the human and ethical side of AI.
For instance, a real AI architect knows or must know as much about the AI from technical design, as possessing the ability to identify the lack of poor architectural choices – especially when it comes to AI algorithms and models that have to survive not only the test of model relevance. Whether model drift or model shift but also its ability to answer to sensitive questions such as : “Is this model objective enough to not have, say “gender” as a weighing factor?” or “What are the risks/implications of transferability of such model from small population to a large subsets?”

This and a lot more will be discussed in 2021 – 2022 until the definitive launch of the Human Centered AI Masters in fall 2022.
"All sessions will run live and will be hosted on LinkedIn Live" . You can also view the recorded sessions at the News section. We will have more engaging discussions with top industry leaders including our project partners from Universities, Research Labs, Industry parties and others. A complete list of all project partners can be found here.
We look forward to welcoming you to our live sessions,
