Post-Conference Workshop: Responsible Innovation and the Education of Future AI practitioners

As part of an EU-funded initiative on Promoting Responsible Innovation in AI for Peace and Security, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) will organise a one-hour roundtable on Responsible innovation and the education of future AI practitioners

The purpose of this roundtable is to explore how responsible innovation can be further promoted in the education of future AI practitioners. It will examine how STEM students destined for a career in AI can gain awareness of the societal impact of technology by receiving formal training on responsible innovation as part of their university education. This roundtable aims to be a platform for professors, researchers, and curriculum developers to reflect and discuss existing good practices and look at how they can be disseminated, as well as identify gaps in the education on responsible innovation.

How: The roundtable will be a moderated discussion between all participants. The moderators – Dr Vincent Boulanin (SIPRI) and Charles Ovink (UNODA) – will start with a short introduction to frame the discussion and will then move into an open discussion based on pre-circulated questions (all registered participants will receive a list of questions prior to the event). We do not expect participants to prepare a formal presentation, statements or slides. We would like this discussion to be as conversational as possible. 

Who: The roundtable is a closed event for registered professors, researchers, and curriculum developers. All participants will sit at the table. There will be no public audience. The discussion will be held under the Chatham House Rule. That is, participants are free to use the information exchanged during the discussion but must not disclose the identity or affiliation of the speaker, nor any other participant.

Participation in this dialogue provides an opportunity to:

  • Connect and share knowledge and experiences with influential stakeholders. 
  • Contribute substantial insights to the international policy conversation on responsible AI.
  • Support the development of an international network of professors who are interested in supporting the greater development and promotion of responsible innovation in AI as a useful approach to technology governance.

To allow for sufficient time for all participants to engage in the conversations there are limited sits available for this roundtable.
