Strategic Research and Innovation Roadmap

TAILOR Strategic Research and Innovation Roadmap (SRIR) aims to boost research on Trustworthy AI by clearly defining the major research challenges. TAILOR SRIR is written by a Roadmap Editorial Board (REB) from dedicated partners. This REB was established during the first TAILOR General Assembly, and will be renewed whenever deemed necessary, favouring the diversity of points of view. It will be in particular open to key players of other subcommunities of AI research, should they wish to contribute. Since the AI landscape is moving very fast, TAILOR SRIR will be updated regularly and provisions made to perpetuate it beyond TAILOR.

The first version of the TAILOR Strategic Research & Innovation Roadmap has been published, and work is starting on an update (version 2). This task will be done by the TNO team, which has been extended with Cor Veenman and Judith Dijk. In the updated version, attention will be paid to how TAI and LOR are interacting – very good inputs for this have been collected in a workshop organized by partner UNIBO (Michela Milano and Roberta Calegari). Also, the Theme Development Workshops will be included in the SRIR v2. The most challenging part will be to create a real ‘roadmap’ and not just a sketch of the ‘landscape’.

The second version of the Roadmap will be coordinated by TNO and is scheduled to be ready by April 2024. This version will take into account the identified Goals, Conditions, and Priorities, and will include a comprehensive list of Actions pertaining to new methods and activities to accomplish the results of a TrustworthyAI.

Full version

The full version gives the whole story. It’s ideal for specialised researchers but can be read and enjoyed by a motivated layman.

Short version

This 2-page document is ideal for a short read or for using as hand-out to a mixed audience.
