The Series

With the financial support from the Federal Ministry For Economic Affairs And Climate Action we were able to organise two inspiring events for the German #AI4good, #tech4good and social entrepreneurship scene in December 2023.

First Meetup | AI for Social Innovation: Sustainability & Ethics (December 6, 2023)

Our first official meetup from this series took place digitally with three top-level speakers, who brought to the audience information and deep insights about AI and ethics, how to build AI solutions for a better tomorrow and about how to scale AI responsibly. 

During the different interactions with the audience, we learned that the most relevant principles when approaching AI and Ethics for them are: 

  • Right to Privacy and Data Protection
  • Transparency and Explainability 
  • Awareness & Literacy
