CS Professor Cristina Conati Receives CIFAR Funding to Organize Trust in AI Systems Workshop

Computer Science Professor Cristina Conati has been awarded $40K from the Canadian Institute For Advanced Research (CIFAR) AI and Society Initiative to organize a workshop on Trust in AI Systems.  Trust is a complex and multifaceted construct that plays a fundamental role in the deployment and acceptance of AI technologies. The workshop aims to gain a broader understanding of how factors such as application domain and user differences come into play to create trustworthy AI systems that empower their users to understand when the system’s actions are valuable and should be accepted, but also when they have limitations.

This is a joint initiative among CIFAR,  France's Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).  More information here.
