On 20th-21st February 2023, the AI4Gov project officially started its activities with the kick-off meeting, held in Athens. An online preparatory meeting was preceded in order to identify those issues that needed to be addressed, so that the kick-off meeting would be as productive as possible. AI4Gov partners got to know one another better by discussing about their expertise and the work that they will deliver during the project lifetime.
With the latest developments around generative artificial intelligence rightfully grabbing the spotlight, and an ever-increasing number of AI applications flooding the market, the need for projects like ΑΙ4Gov to ensure that AI solutions affecting the public sphere, are un-biased, discrimination-free, fair, and trusted, is more pressing than ever.
Following the kick-off meeting, the AI4Gov coordination team, including all work package leaders and task leaders of ongoing tasks, initiated recurring meetings to plan next steps and discuss progress achieved.
