Projects funded by first call – AI and Public Trust

We are pleased to announce the new projects the HDI Network Plus will fund. This was in response to the call on the theme ‘AI and Public Trust’.

We were in the very happy position of having a strong field of applications comprising some very interesting projects, though, sadly, we had limited money with which to fund. We are very grateful to all who submitted.

In the end, we could fund four projects.

  1. Rights of Childhood: Affective Computing and Data Protection. Prof A McStay, Bangor University, G. Rosner, IoT Privacy Forum
  2. Public trust and understanding of online content moderation, and its impacts on public discourse. Dr C. Happer, Dr T. Storer, A., Alkharashi, University of Glasgow.
  3. Public Trust in Data Driven Systems and AI Futures. Dr R. Steedman, University of Sheffield,  Dr. R. Jones, BBC R&D.
  4. Pivot Strategy: Making Ethics Intelligible and Negotiable.Dr. F. Ustek-Spilda and Dr. A. Powell, London School of Economics.

We are looking forward to seeing where these projects lead us!
