Disruptive 4.0: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Artificial Intelligence

Every year in July, ALTI offers a 1 week intensive Summer Academy on Multidisciplinary Aspects of Artificial Intelligence.

The course builds a theoretical baseline for all participants, introducing the main concepts of legal and ethical implications of AI, analysing, among others, European and international aspects of AI governance. The course also offers unique insights on AI applications, such as autonomous vehicles and social robots and also AI applications used in space related activities, for example AI systems used for space exploration (navigating on Mars and other celestial bodies), for mitigating the consequences of space pollution (space junk) or for enhancing our digital societies on Earth (Global Navigation Satellites Systems). Technical perspectives are also analysed, with experts taking a deep dive into the models behind AI, various levels of automation, vulnerabilities affecting the operation of AI and corresponding liability rules in case of incidents.
