Workshop: Educating Engineers for Safe AI
EPCC and Bayes Centre at the University of Edinburgh are hosting a workshop titled Educating Engineers for Safe AI on Thursday 29 June. The workshop will start with a panel discussion on responsible and trustworthy AI featuring speakers including Steph Wright (Scottish AI Alliance) and Arfon Smith (GitHub). Following this, participants will take part in sessions to identify and discuss key challenges, engage in knowledge exchange around useful resources, and provide input for recommendations for training in this area. Lunch will be provided and the day will finish with a drinks reception.
The workshop is part of a larger initiative sponsored by The Alan Turing Institute, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Cambridge and UCL Universities, which consists of two regional nonresidential satellite workshops in Edinburgh (29 June) and Cambridge (4 July) and a final residential workshop in Newcastle on the 15 and 16 August.
The purpose of the workshop series is to develop a road map for the creation of a syllabus and set of professional education materials, targeted at software and systems engineers so that they can be empowered to champion the creation of safe, ethical and trustworthy AI in their workplaces. These materials will become part of The Turing Way project.
The workshops are open to:
- AI Engineers, Data Scientists, Systems Engineers, ML-Ops, Research Software Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers, AI UI/UX designers, and more, working in the implementation of AI systems OR
- Academics and other experts working in areas related to Safe, Ethical, Reliable and Trustworthy Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence OR
- Academics and other experts working in professional education, CPD, learning design, and related areas, interested in developing materials related to safe AI for professional audiences.
There is some travel/accommodation assistance available to help travellers with the costs associated with this event available to those with no other funding options available.
