Successful and timely uptake of artificial intelligence in science in the EU (Evidence Review Report)

A new European institute for Artificial Intelligence in science and technologies of the future must be driven by people and communities, not only by profit: these are two key messages of renowned scientists. Nominated by the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences (a+), Andrea Emilio Rizzoli from the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Lugano co-chaired the group of scientists that drafted these messages.

The new institute would provide massive high-performing computational power, a sustainable cloud infrastructure and AI training programmes for scientists. "That means giving universities and research institutes across Europe fair access to state-of-the-art AI facilities", Andrea Rizzoli says. Additionally, the advice is to promote research on the philosophical, legal, and ethical issues that arise when AI is used in science, and the impact this has on fundamental human rights, transparency and accountability.

The report with the scientific messages was drafted the Academies’ consortium SAPEA, which gathers expertise from more than 100 institutions across Europe, in the context of the Scientific Advice Mechanism.
