At the webinar on September 6 Jennifer Renoux, Örebro University introduced the participants to theoretical and practical aspects of ethics applied to AI systems. As AI systems become more common and expand their abilities, the decisions they made have a crucial and lasting impact on society. It is of paramount importance that those in charge of designing such systems work toward ethical and responsible systems.
Jennifer received her Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence and Application in 2015 from the University of Caen Normandy (France) with a research topic of planning for information gathering in multi-agent systems. Her research focused on how a team of artificial agents could coordinate online to gather information in an uncertain and dynamic environment. She developed an agent-based relevance degree to quantify how relevant a given piece of information is for a given agent and incorporate it in a Theory-of-Mind based model to allow online coordination. She has since broadened her research interests to communication in multi-agent teams, and specifically mixed human-machine teams. She is trying to understand how communication impacts the performance of mixed human-machine teams, and how it can be used to create efficient, comfortable, and trustworthy interactions between humans and artificial systems.
