UvA-led consortium wins long-term NWO support for trustworthy AI
Artificial intelligence has the potential to help bring about sustainable solutions to many of society’s most intractable problems, and in doing so, to create great opportunities for the Netherlands. But to ensure that AI technology is widely adopted and benefits all sections of society, it is essential that the systems that we develop are trustworthy. The ROBUST long-term programme was set up to tackle this challenge.
Essential hallmarks of trustworthy AI
The ROBUST programme, which has a total budget of over €95 million, will build on the Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI). It intends to add 17 labs to ICAI’s current ecosystem of 30 labs, in areas as diverse as health, energy, logistics, and services. The labs that make up ROBUST will be marked by the economic opportunities they create and their contributions to the UN’s sustainable development goals. They will develop AI-algorithms that advance the state of the art in accuracy, reliability, repeatability, resilience and safety – all essential hallmarks of trustworthy AI.
The project leader is Maarten de Rijke of the University of Amsterdam and ICAI. The co-applicants are Mark van den Brand (Technical University Eindhoven), Arie van Deursen (Delft University of Technology), Bram van Ginneken (RadboudUMC), Eva van Rikxoort (Thirona), Clarisa Sánchez Gutiérrez (University of Amsterdam), and Nava Tintarev (Maastricht University).
