The presence and capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI) have grown significantly and will continue to do so. The Humane AI Flagship will develop the scientific foundations and technological breakthroughs needed to shape the ongoing AI revolution. The goal is to deploy AI systems that enhance human capabilities and empower individuals and societies, and ultimately extend human intelligence (rather than replace it). With 35 partners from 17 countries, Humane AI is undertaking a preparatory action to draft an ambitious research agenda to provide competitive advantages to European industry and substantial benefits to society. Partners are united by the vision of a new generation of ethical, value-oriented, and human-centric European approach to AI.
The Humane AI Flagship will develop the scientific foundations and technological breakthroughs needed to shape the ongoing artificial intelligence (AI) revolution. The goal is to design and deploy AI systems that enhance human capabilities and empower both individuals and society as a whole to develop AI that extends rather than replaces human intelligence. This vision fits very well into the ambitions articulated by the EC in its Communication on AI but cannot be achieved by legislation or political directives alone. Instead it needs fundamentally new solutions to core research problems in AI and human-computer interaction (HCI), especially to help people understand actions recommended or performed by AI systems.
