AI for People is regularly hosting, as well as collaborating on a wide-range of conferences, workshops, talks and hackathons and the like.

Upcoming Events

1st AI for People Conference a freely accessible online conference for researchers and enthusiasts on Sustainable Artificial Intelligence.

For this first-of-its-kind event, we have something special coming up. Since AI for People wants to educate, develop and inform the use of Artificial Intelligence for the societal good, we want this conference to be accessible to everyone – whether you are an academic in the field of AI or not. Hence, we have two paths on which you can join the event. One is the academic path, which will have its standard call for papers, proceedings and paper presentations. The other one is the public path, which allows everyone who’s interested in artificial intelligence for the societal good to attend workshops, talks and discussions on a comprehensible level of understanding. The two paths are aligned such that any participant can partake in all events, irrespective of the path. More details will be announced soon.

AI for People Special Issue AI & Society – Journal of Culture, Knowledge and Communication (Springer)

  • Manuscript submission: April 30, 2021
  • Notifications: July 30, 2021
  • Final versions: November 30, 2021

This Special Issue was born out of the idea of shaping Artificial Intelligence technology around human and societal needs. We believe that technology should respect the anthropocentric principle. It should be at the service of the people, not vice-versa. In order to foster this idea, we need to narrow the gap between civil society and technical experts. This gap is one in knowledge, in action, and in tools for change.
