Who should win the Dutch Applied AI Award?

Featured image

Last year, during the Month of the AAI in November, the Centre of Expertise Applied Artificial Intelligence (AUAS - Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) presented the Dutch Applied AI Award for the first time. This year we are back for a second edition. The award is part of the Computable Awards and is for suppliers of AI solutions, start-ups in the AI field and good examples of the implementation of AI.

This award is jointly organized with AUAS, Computable and podcast De Dataloog . You can nominate an individual or organisation, based on a project you think has stood out in the past 12 months. The projects may have been particularly successful, innovative or extensive.

You can nominate until 16 August 2021

The winner will be announced on 2 November 2021 during a spectacular show in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht. Last year, healthcare platform DEARhealth won the Dutch Applied AI award. Who will walk away with the prize this year? 🙌🏻

About the Computable Awards

This will be the 16th year in a row that Computable will present the Computable Awards in November 2021. These prizes are awarded to companies, projects and individuals who, according to Computable readers, have clearly distinguished themselves in the past year.

An independent jury of experts will select five nominees for each award from the nominated parties. The ranking by the jury and the number of votes from Computable readers each determine half of which nominee will receive the award in November. The number of times a party is nominated for a nomination does not play a role, but the quality of the substantiation and information about the project mentioned does.

Comenius Leadership Fellow grant to make AUAS students AI-ready

Featured image

The Centre of Expertise Applied AI of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) has been awarded a Comenius Leadership Fellow grant of €500,000 for the AI4Students project. Over the next three years, the project headed by Professor of Responsible AI Nanda Piersma intends to use the Comenius grant to equip AUAS students for a future in which artificial intelligence (AI) will play an increasingly important role.

The assessment committee of the Netherlands Initiative for Education Research (NRO) selected the project from a total of 15 applications and praised AI4Students for its innovative character and the expected benefits for students, lecturers and the professional field. “Because of the social relevance of the topic, the committee is confident that the outcomes will be valuable to students and lecturers as well as the professional field.”

AI-ready upon graduation

AI4Students is a project that should have an impact in all faculties of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. “We would like to ensure that all AUAS students are AI-ready by the time they graduate, not just with a general acquaintance with AI, but AI specifically geared to their field of study,” Piersma explains. “So it’s not about them studying with us first to become an accountant or physiotherapist, for example, and then having to take an additional training course as soon as they start their job. Instead, they should already be thinking with us about how AI is going to affect their job.”

The Comenius Leadership Fellow 2021 grant will enable Piersma to start fulfilling that ambition over the next three years. “What we want to do is start performing an AI impact scan for 9 degree programmes,” Piersma explains. “In what way is artificial intelligence going to impact a professional field? How will this affect what professionals need to be able to do, and what does that mean for the degree programme itself?”

Tijdens onze meetups kun je achterover leunen, kennis opdoen en partners voor samenwerking vinden. Een meetup zonder al teveel regels, maar altijd op inspirerende plekken buiten de schoolmuren waar creatieve innovatie plaatsvindt. Waar studenten, docenten en onderzoekers samen met buurtbewoners werken aan het oplossen van vraagstukken op buurtniveau.

Kom naar onze eerste live meetup en maak kennis met het team van CoECI, het SluisLab en leer nieuwe mensen kennen tijdens de borrel!

Daar bezoeken we kort het placemaking terrein: het gebied voor bewonersinitiatieven én de plek waar volgend jaar Broedplaats Baggerbeest gaat verrijzen: een mooie mix à 2500m2 van ateliers voor kunstenaars, SluisLab en leer-, werk- en ontmoetingsplaatsen voor makers, bewoners, ondernemers en studenten.

Livecast: How to Design a Sustainable and Inclusive City

Featured image

In this upcoming edition of the MAB 2021 we focus on how interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services will help us in shaping and building a sustainable and inclusive future city.

How can (digital) design and art play a role in the sustainable and inclusive city? And how does digitalization influence architecture and urban living spaces?

When: Thursday, July 1st
What time: 16:30-18:00 CEST

The New European Bauhaus initiative connects the European Green Deal to our living spaces. It calls on all Europeans to imagine and build together a sustainable and inclusive future that is beautiful for our eyes, minds, and souls.

The Centre of Expertise for Creative Innovation (CoECI) shares the European ambition and supports this initiative. That is why CoECI recently became official partner of the New European Bauhaus. As such, CoECI invites architects, thinkers and designers to elaborate on the needs and good examples that will help us to reach the sustainable ambitions for Europe.

Centre of Expertise Applied AI launches magazine

Featured image

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Science permeate all the capillaries of society. The scientific developments in these fields are rapid. The applications affect all sectors and professions - to a greater or lesser extent - for which the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) trains.

The AUAS Centre of Expertise Applied AI exists since February 1, 2021 and focuses on the meaningful application of AI techniques in a specific context (healthcare, accountancy, media, retail, etc.). In seven application-oriented labs we work together in co-creation - with education, research, business and civil society organizations - on innovation.

In this way, we train students and retrain professionals to be change-makers for companies and organizations. In this way, we are shaping the digital transition in a real, responsible and inclusive way. And we make the connection between fundamental and practical research, aimed at the daily application of AI in companies and other organizations. In this way, the AUAS contributes to an inclusive digital transition.

In our magazine we proudly present our seven labs and discuss the importance of our Centre of Expertise. We hope you get a good impression of our methods and approach.

You can find the digital magazine (in Dutch) here 👉🏻 https://heyzine.com/flip-book/552a2865a3.html#page/1

Hoe maken we zinvolle en bruikbare AI-applicaties?
Hoe ziet verantwoorde AI eruit, die menselijke vermogens en vaardigheden vergroot en de samenleving ten goede komt? Het Responsible AI Lab van het Centre of Expertise Applied AI bestudeert de technologie van AI en gaat de dialoog daarover aan. Het lab maakt Artificiële Intelligentie toegankelijk voor iedereen: inclusief en divers. Specifiek staan de publieke sector en de creatieve industrie centraal. Het lab focust zich voornamelijk op de bredere vraag hoe we zinvolle en bruikbare AI-applicaties kunnen ontwerpen.
