cS Explains


Composing trustworthiness podcast mini-series

 Space for dialogue  Digital & Trade 

Throughout the mini-series entitled Composing trustworthiness, we explore the impact that Artificial Intelligence, in short AI, has on art, language, and culture more broadly, as well as on international relations. We examine the EU’s aspiration for trust and excellence in AI, in light of popular excitement surrounding the launch of new tools, but also growing debates around diversity, fairness, values and risks.

 Space for dialogue  Digital & Trade 

In this first episode of the mini-series entitled Composing trustworthiness, we focus on the importance of culture for AI development, and vice versa the influence of AI on culture.



 Space for dialogue  Digital & Trade 

In this second episode of the mini-series we ask our experts how are European values reflected in its regulatory approach, and is this approach to AI compatible with other cultures.
