New Labs Established in the AUAS Expertise Centre Applied AI
The ECAAI labs, which are connected to the seven AUAS faculties, co-create to make AI work. The centre is a place where AI technology and knowledge of the application domain meet.
Each lab brings research, education and practices together to solve short and middle term challenges in the application of AI:
- Centre for Market Insights
- Finance Lab
- Legal Tech Lab
- Smart Health/Care Lab
- Responsible AI Lab
- Predictive Maintenance Lab
- Smart Education Lab
In the ECAAI, the development of applications of AI technology is driven in a responsible and inclusive manner. Technology and its implications for companies, organisations, governments and people can only be understood in context and through experimentation.
The different labs have strong connections with companies and organisations, which gives them the opportunity to share and implement AI technology. The partners also get help from the labs in training their employees in AI technology. The same goes for AUAS students and staff. In this way, the ECAAI connects talented students with the (future) workplace.
The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Data Science Center (DSC) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are joining forces in a new joint fellowship for (teams of) researchers interested in exploring the intersection of data science and other disciplines. The first fellow of the new program, Dr. Davide Ceolin, will start his fellowship at the IAS on June 17. Ceolin is currently affiliated with CWI.
Nanda Piersma, lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), has been appointed as a crown member of the Social and Economic Counsil (SER). This is the first time that a lecturer has been appointed as member of the SER. Nanda Piersma was approached because of her expertise in the field of digitisation.
The ADS Thesis Awards aim to promote excellence in Data Science and AI from students at BSc and Master level. The Awards are open to students from all Amsterdam-based knowledge institutes.
