Dear all,
The EU-wide HumaneAI Net project invites you to attend and participate in our next special event:

AI and Human Memory
Understanding, Supporting, and Improving Human Memory through Human-Centered AI

When: February 23, 2021 (Tuesday); 14:00 to 16:00 CET (UTC + 1), 8am-10am EST, 22:00-24:00 JST
Event page:
How to attend:  Zoom meeting details will be released online 1 hour before the event. Register<> for an e-mail reminder with meeting details:

Human memory drives the encoding, storing, and retrieval of our experiences. Artificial intelligence may help us in understanding challenges in memory research and could improve but potentially also hinder memory encoding and retrieval. Experts from Psychology, HCI, and Computer Science will discuss challenges and opportunities on the intersection of AI and Human Memory from a human-centered perspective in this workshop.

Albrecht Schmidt, Antti Oulasvirta, Robin Welsch, Kashyap Todi

About HumaneAI Net
The Humane AI Net<> project funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 program aims to bring together the European AI community to develop the scientific foundations and technological breakthroughs needed to shape the AI revolution in a direction that is beneficial to humans both individually and societally, and that adheres to European ethical values and social, cultural, legal, and political norms. Key specific questions that the project addresses are:
• AI systems that „understand” humans,
• AI systems that can interact in complex social settings
• AI systems that enhance  human capabilities
• AI systems that empower both individuals and society as a whole carefully balancing individual benefits and social impact of their functionality
• AI systems that respect human autonomy and self-determination
• Ethics and Legal Protection “by design” in complex dynamic AI systems
