On May 30th and 31st, IEAI Director Christoph Lütge and Executive Director Caitlin Corrigan attended the AI for Good Summit in Geneva, Switzerland. Dr. Corrigan took part in an all-day workshop examining collective AI for impact. In her session, she discussed how research institutions can better facilitate real exchange between universities and NGOs working on humanitarian issues to implement AI tools for positive impact. The role of ethics and responsible use was a key point in the discussion, with participants acknowledging that AI-enabled tools aimed at achieving the SDGs will only have impact if they also include ethics-by-design. The workshop was organized by researchers at the Notre Dame Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society and the Notre Dame-IBM Technology Ethics Lab, who are supporting one of the IEAI’s newest projects – MoralPLai.

Prof. Lütge and Dr. Corrigan also met with key partners during the event including TUM strategic partners from Tsinghua University’s Institute for AI International Governance and Globethics, our partner for the upcoming International AI and Human Rights Summit in July, as well as partners in our Global AI Ethics Consortium from Stellenbosch University.
