Call for PhD Candidates | Summer School Trust and Safety in Artificial Intelligence | July 4th – 9th 2022 | Antibes, France

The week of July 4th – 9th 2022 will be bustling with interesting keynote talks and workshops, and a special focus on Trust and Safety in Artificial Intelligence.

We will turn the spot onto the topic of trust and safety in artificial intelligence, a broad field of discussion and growing relevance at the crossroads of technology, psychoogy, product safety, law, economics, and ethics. In that context, what is trust? What creates and influences trust in a system? How must a technical system or product be designed to be trustworthy? How do we extend concepts of product quality and safety when introducing machine learning algorithms? What is SafeAI after all and how do we verify and validate reliable performance of neural networks? How can we prove algorithmic behavior in safety-critical systems? What measures need to be taken in corporate processes to ensure trust and safety in AI-powered approaches? What challenges can be expected in governance and oversight?

The future of intelligent cars has just begun – help shape it during this exciting summer school. Join us for a week of technical deep dives and multi-disciplinary debate!

We are soliciting original contributions from international PhD students and young researchers with a keen interest in shaping the future of individual mobility. The BMW Summer School is encouraging multi-disciplinary discussion and hence is calling for contributions from all fields – from computer or transportation science, to electrical engineering, from economics to legal, from sociology to psychology and philosophy.

Contributions will be as single poster to be presented during the summer school. Submissions are required to be full poster submissions. The poster, a 1-page description of your research activities, a letter of motivation, together with a short CV (including list of publications and/or academic achievements) is to be submitted to Easychair. This Summer School qualifies for ECTS credits.

For further details incl. a preliminary program please see the conference website.

The BMW Summer School will be organized in three tracks:
•    Keynote/breakout track – Learning from invited speakers presenting their views and research.
•    Poster track – presentation & discussion of conference submissions.
•    Lean startup machine – develop innovative ideas in a competitive startup/pitching format.
