What is FARI

FARI is a non-profit university institute on AI, data and robotics focused on the Common Good. We are jointly initiated by two Brussels universities (VUB & ULB) – uniting the interdisciplinary expertise across 10 research groups on AI, data, robotics, social sciences, ethics, and law.

We use Brussels as a laboratory to do research together and build bridges with public administrations, industry, and citizens, promoting urban and sustainable AI, with a focus on urban and public priority domains such as health, mobility, climate and energy, participatory and inclusive society.

About the Test & Experience Centre

The Test & Experience Centre plays a vital role in fulfilling FARI’s mission by informing and inspiring local organizations, authorities, and public administrations.

So, how do we achieve this? At the Test & Experience Centre, we showcase the research findings of FARI-affiliated research groups through interactive demonstrators. These demonstrators are specifically designed to provide an understandable and engaging introduction to AI, data, and robotics for non-expert audiences.

FARI offers guided demo tours at the Test & Experience Centre as a service. These demo tours typically last from half an hour to 1,5 hours and can accommodate groups of up to 15 people. Previously, we have organized demo tours for local organizations such as Muntpunt, European Commission, and Bozar.To provide the best experience, demo tours should be accompanied by a knowledgeable tour guide. The guide enhances the visit by providing additional information and context about the demonstrators. Given that the Test & Experience Centre is still in development, and not all demonstrators are self-explanatory yet, having a tour guide is essential to offer an informative and engaging experience.
