Leuven AI Forum (LAIF) is a non-profit organization that connects students, academics, industry experts and policy makers around important topics of A.I. Policy and Ethics.
Our purpose is to create a multidisciplinary platform that raises awareness for pressing issues around AI, facilitates collaboration between different stakeholders and creates opportunities for the advancement of solutions.
LAIF aims to become a research facilitator conducting AI Policy research that will ensure the safe and ethical deployment of AI technologies along with close collaboration of Industry leaders and Policy makers.
Our mission and activities are built upon the curious and active student and academic community of Leuven and the rest of Belgium.
There is often a communication barrier between people of different disciplines (technical, business, policy, philosophical, humanitarian etc) and different occupations (professionals, students, academics, general public) when discussing about the nuances of different AI topics.
LAIF aims to break down those barriers by connecting people from all backgrounds in order to facilitate general awareness on AI topics and a holistic approach to AI development and research.
At LAIF, we conceptualize, design and organise a host of activities tailored to fulfill the needs of different stakeholders in the AI ecosystem.
TED conferences bring together the worlds most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives. The TEDx program is designed to give communities the oppurtunity to host TED-like events at a local level. TEDx events are fully coordinated intependently. TED grants its strong brand name for local events under the franchise name TEDx
LAIF coordinates TEDxLeuven, and provides most of the volunteers for this inspiring event.
