AI, Data, Robotics Forum 2023: Generative AI for European society and industry

8-9 November 2023, Inria HQ, Versailles

The much-anticipated AI, Data, Robotics Forum 2023 (ADRF23) is just around the corner, and it promises to provide a holistic perspective on the realm of AI Networks of Excellence. This remarkable event is scheduled to kick off on November 8th in Versailles, this event will bring together some of the brightest minds and most influential players in the field of AI and robotics.

ELIAS will also be presented together with  standing alongside other prestigious European Networks of Excellence in AI & Robotics!

The European Networks of Excellence Centres in AI and Robotics will have their first joint booth – search for an unmistakable blue-coloured design in the “RENOIR” exhibition area at the ADR Forum. 

This remarkable collaboration has been made possible thanks to the VISION project, which is generously facilitating and sponsoring a joint presentation. For the first time, AI Networks of Excellence will unite under a common visual identity for AI NoE, resulting in a dedicated booth at ADRF23, as the Gold Partner of the ADRF 2023.

ADRF23, known as the “AI, Data, Robotics Forum 2023,” is designed to shed light on the advancements in Generative AI for European society and industry. It serves as the perfect stage for the “AI NoE” Community to make its mark while attracting key stakeholders from the Adra – AI-Data-Robotics-Association ecosystem including European Commission representatives.

    Join us on 8 and 9 November in the Inria Headquarters in Versailles and seize the opportunity to connect with members of our community, especially – but not only – during the breaks:

    8 November: 11:25-11:50, 13:30-14:15, 15:45-16:00

    9 November: 10:15-10:45, 13:00-13:30, 15:00-15:30

    Do not miss the chance to be part of this extraordinary convergence of AI excellence at ADRF23, where innovation, collaboration, and the future of trustworthy AI take center stage

    The ELIAS Project, a groundbreaking initiative dedicated to advancing artificial intelligence (AI) innovation and sustainability, held its official kick-off meeting in Trento, Italy, on September 6-7, 2023. Hosted by the University of Trento, this event marked the commencement of a four-year journey encompassing Sustainable AI, Trustworthy AI, and Nurturing Excellence in AI.

    Artificial intelligence has become a ubiquitous topic of conversation, with numerous research groups around the world actively engaged in advancing cutting-edge technologies across various domains. Yet, true competitiveness in this field requires aspiring to broader and more ambitious goals, particularly for those seeking to establish European leadership in this domain. Such an achievement can only be realised through collaborative networking, and this is where the ELIAS project truly shines.

    ELIAS, an acronym for “European Lighthouse of AI for Sustainability,” stands out as a pioneering endeavour due to both its scope and innovative approach. With a mission to galvanize the field of machine learning, ELIAS aims to establish itself as a central reference point by fostering collaboration among 34 active affiliates in this sector, along with a cohort of associated partners hailing from 17 different countries.

    Over the next four years, researchers will be dedicated to developing new computational systems and mathematical models to provide original and achievable solutions to urgent contemporary issues. Elias’ challenge is to bridge the academic and business worlds at the European level. The tools to achieve this include research, the mobility of doctoral students, and support for young talents who, upon completing their studies, can establish innovative startups. The research areas are diverse but interconnected. For instance, artificial intelligence can be used to identify the best materials for constructing green buildings or environmentally friendly industrial components. It can also be employed to monitor the migration of people arriving in Europe and investigate the motivations behind their journeys. Additionally, AI can be applied to develop cybersecurity prevention systems and models for analysing climate change.

    ELIAS will embark on collaborative initiatives in tandem with other European Network of Excellence (NoE) projects, such as AI4Media, TAILOR, and HUMANE AI NET, as well as European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) units. This collaborative effort establishes a comprehensive ecosystem for the advancement of artificial intelligence. Representatives from ELLIS, ELISE, and ELSA offered insights into ELIAS’s role within the broader AI research community.

    AI for environmental sustainability, equitable economic development, and societal well-being

    The University of Trento will coordinate the collaborative efforts among different partners, encompassing universities, research institutions, and industrial entities, all united in their commitment to addressing the pressing challenges of our time: environmental sustainability, equitable economic development, and societal well-being. Niculae Sebe, a professor at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) and the project’s coordinator, highlighted the project’s mission: “Our objective is to ensure that technological breakthroughs in the realm of machine learning not only elevate the quality of life for individuals, but also benefit society as a whole and contribute to the well-being of our entire planet. Our endeavours will revolve around the development of algorithms designed to uncover solutions that promote and attain this sustainability.”

    The future of AI research holds immense promise, and ELIAS stands at the forefront of this transformative journey. With its multidisciplinary approach and steadfast commitment to nurturing young talent, the project underscores its dedication to making substantial contributions to the evolving landscape of artificial intelligence.

    The ELIAS Project is dedicated to propelling the scientific advancement of AI in Europe, with the ultimate goal of positioning the continent as a global leader in AI research.
