FARI Test & Experience Center is a public-oriented center that will allow citizens and organisations to test, experiment, and to ultimately understand what AI is and what it should be. This will be launched in January 2023.
Public and Private Research Laboratories
The Centre will soon display demos and prototypes from both non-commercial and commercial research institutes. We aim to help companies and research labs develop and improve their proof-of-concepts through workshops, trainings, and other services.
Due to its prime location in Brussels, the Centre is well positioned to cater Brussels policymakers to explore smart cities’ solutions. The Centre aims to facilitate the implementation of Brussels-based projects and thus strengthening the collaborative efforts between researchers and Brussels' public administration.
The Centre will provide experience-oriented facilities including demos, prototypes, and workshops for the broader public. This aims to create an environment for technology testing and for stirring public discussions about the future of a trustworthy digital society.
