Areas of Thematic Research
AI Ethics By Design
Due to AI’s vast influence, getting AI ethics right is a moral and business imperative. AI ethics by design research will systematically focus on capturing and modelling biases and fairness in AI applications to achieve this goal.
Building AI trustworthiness is essential for broad AI implementation. The goals of privacy-enhanced analytics research include privacy-preserving and confidentiality-aware data collection, sharing and model building.
AI applications development must take into consideration their global impact. AI accountability research uses computational models of compliance and fact-checking, verification and interpretability as essential measurement tools.
