Value-Aware Artificial Intelligence
Values guide, justify, and explain behaviour. Ensuring AI systems are aligned with human values has been raised as a core problem for AI.
By putting moral considerations at the core of the AI system itself, we contribute to making AI more trustworthy.
VALAWAI aims at developing value-aware AI systems; that is, AI systems that are able to understand and abide by a value system and explain its own behaviour or understand the behaviour of others in terms of a value system.
VALAWAI will apply Value-Aware AI to three challenging application domains in domains very much need a moral dimension and adding value-awareness would therefore offer a clear and strong added value for their users.
Given their societal impact, these application domains have a high potential for innovation.
VALAWAI is a multidisciplinary project using neuroscience, robotics, computer science, and engineering.
