FARI AI Academy Launch


FARI, the Brussels AI Center for the Common Good, is a non-for-profit Artificial Intelligence initiative led by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). We bring together scientists, scholarship, policy makers and business enterprises interested in AI and the consequent developments related to infrastructure, services and devices that contribute to individual empowerment without disrupting the common good, thus leading the way into a more concrete elaboration of a European vision of AI.

Apart from our research mission, we also want to help build the next generation of responsible AI innovators. We are therefore proud to launch our FARI AI Academy, through which we will provide a range of training formats, from executive education and a postgraduate program to train the trainer modules and other customized formats that will not only help you understand the increasingly dynamic field of AI, but also will help you address AI challenges with a critical perspective.

Given our strong focus on public AI and sustainable AI, the training programs are geared mostly to challenges and needs in the public sector, research community and non-profit sector. The training programs will both be available for mixed groups in an “open academy” format and in “in house” formats tailored to specific industries, professions or organisations.

In this session, Karen Boers will introduce the mission of FARI’s AI Academy and provide an overview of currently available trainings. The presentation will be in English, but questions can be addressed during the presentation and in the following Q&A in Dutch and French as well.
