Virginia Dignum

I am Professor at the Department of Computing Science at Umeå University, Sweden where I lead the research group Social and Ethical Artificial Intelligence.

I am a Fellow of the European Artificial Intelligence Association (EURAI) and I am also an associated with the Faculty Technology Policy and Management at the Delft University of Technology. See here what I do there. 

Given the increasing importance of understang the impact of AI at societal, ethical and legal level, I am actively involved in several international initiatives on policy and strategy guidelines for AI research and applications. As such I am a member of the European Commission High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence, of the IEEE Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous Systems, the Delft Design for Values Institute, the European Global Forum on AI (AI4People), the Responsible Robotics Foundation, the Dutch AI Alliance on AI (ALLAI-NL) and of the ADA-AI foundation.
