The main goal of the H2020 project is to develop a human-centred AI system that is capable of adapting to complex real-world environments and appropriately interacting in complicated social settings. HumanE AI researchers are coming from 12 European member states and 35 institutions across many scientific disciplines. Their current project also involves researchers from Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), the oldest and largest university in Hungary.
Coordinated by DFKI (Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz), HumanE AI Net brings together top European research centres, universities and key industrial champions into a network of centres of excellence. HumanE AI aims to develop the scientific and technological foundations for artificial intelligence that is tailored to European needs as well as ethical, social, and cultural values. This requires innovations in numerous areas, such as Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Robotics, Human-Computer Interaction, Natural Language Processing and Conversational AI.
HumanE AI divided their core innovations into the following categories:
- “Tools for enhancing human cognitive capabilities, channelling human creativity, inventiveness and intuition and empowering humans to make crucial decisions in a more informed way
- AI systems that can intelligently interact within complex social settings and operative in open-ended environments
- Enabling technologies for explainable, transparent, validated and trustworthy AI systems and
- New approaches to embed value-based ethics and European Cultural, Legal and social values as core design considerations in all AI systems and applications.”
The European research network contributes to the development of robust, trustworthy AI systems that understand humans, adapt to human environments, and behave appropriately in social situations.
The current project places the new technological results in a broader social and ethical context and puts a great emphasis on the concept of artificial intelligence that understands, helps and empowers humans, writes ELTE.
With the help of augmented intelligence, researchers at Eötvös Loránd University supports the work of doctors and health care workers in the areas of diagnosis, monitoring and therapy. The main areas of application are post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and autism in the field of psychiatry and the evaluation of medical imaging results in the field of radiology.
The participation of Eötvös Loránd University is coordinated by the Department of Artificial Intelligence of the Faculty of Informatics with the involvement of the Institute of Physics and Mathematics. Due to the complex software requirements of the interaction, several departments of the Faculty of Informatics are involved in the project. The Department of Physics of Complex Systems and the Artificial Intelligence Research Group of the Institute of Mathematics supports the work with their extensive research experience.
The H2020 project provides an outstanding opportunity for the researchers at Eötvös Loránd University to contribute to the implementation of European Artificial Intelligence strategy and collaborate with the leading European universities and industrial companies.
