Consultation on the UNESCO International Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (IRCAI)
Today, on 25 October 2019, a consultation on setting up and the role of the International Research Center for AI within UNESCO was held in the grand hall of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, between 12:00 and 14:30.
At the consultation, the participants presented their opinions that will serve as the expert starting points for the IRCAI operation. The purpose of the consultation was to connect stakeholders in the field of AI in Slovenia as well. For that purpose, ministries and research institutions contributed their views on the opportunities and role of IRCAI in developing individual areas of work. In addition to bringing together AI researchers from around the world, IRCAI will also address ethical and legal challenges in this area. The consultation was attended by IPI or dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, who is mainly involved in the field of AI from the intellectual property and privacy point of view.
