NORA Webinar: NordSTAR a new center for sustainable and trustworthy AI in Norway

In this talk Anis Yazidi and Pedro Lind will present an overview of NordSTAR, our new Nordic Center for Sustainable and Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence Research at OsloMet. NordSTAR focuses on establishing and developing a new paradigm in Artificial Intelligence (AI) basic research, which we call Sustainable and Trustworthy AI.  Yazidi and Lind will argue that this paradigm will enable the development of new design principles for AI tools, which are sustainable and trustworthy by design. Moreover, they will describe in some detail the composition of NordSTAR in its five research groups: Security and Reliability, Explainable AI, Human factors in AI, Biologically-inspired Computational Systems and Quantum AI. Finally we will share the main steps for developing this academic environment in the next years.
