  • Increase awareness and understanding of the ethical considerations surrounding AI development, deployment, and impact on society among the university community.
  • Facilitate collaborative discussions and exchanges of ideas between various faculties, encouraging multidisciplinary perspectives and insights on the ethical implications of AI.
  • Support and promote ethical AI research initiatives by integrating research groups from different faculties and providing a space for sharing expertise, methodologies, and best practices.
  • Explore the intersection of ethics and law in the context of AI technologies, engaging with legal experts and policymakers to contribute to developing ethical and legal frameworks for AI.
  •  Advocate for responsible AI development and deployment, emphasising the importance of transparency, accountability, and fairness in AI systems.
