Artificial Intelligence for Doctoral Candidates
The whole world is changing in different ways, including technology, climate change, or demography. What is more, it is changing exponentially and at an accelerating speed. In research, an illustrative example of this could be data growth: 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the last two years alone. But, how do we adapt to this avalanche effect of disruptive changes?
A new approach is required. Introducing some of the social factors of change into the formula may be the answer. Thus, we should rethink doctoral education by implementing new skills like innovation, Open Science, or entrepreneurship.
Apart from DIOSI, an example of this willingness of transformation is AIDA, the joint initiative of four ICT-48 networks (AI4Media, ELISE, HumanE-AI NET, TAILOR) and the VISION project to support a world-level AI education and research program. With this proposal, 67 leading European AI partners have joined efforts with the 5 Horizon Europe ICT48 AI main projects to “foster Ph.D. education excellence in AI”.
This initiative intends to have a significant impact on AI academic education, industry workforce upskilling, and in facing crucial social challenges, “which range from the fight against disinformation to the provision of a human-centered and trustworthy AI that serves not only European citizens, but humanity in general”.
