    Dear EOSC-Future/RDA AIDV-WG Members,
    Some announcements related to the AIDV work we have been doing.
    CoARA ERIP
    The Coalition for the Advancement of Research Assessment (CoARA)’s Steering Board has informed us that the working group ‘ERIP: Ethics and Research Integrity Policy in Responsible Research Assessment for Data and Artificial Intelligence’ has been accepted. You can now find ERIP listed on the CoARA website here. Much of the work in assembling ERIP was performed in Salzburg during the 21st RDA Plenary Meeting during the International Data Week. We wish to thank the CoARA Steering Board and Secretariat for their excellent comments and advice on our submission as well as for the support they have provided throughout this process. There is some administrative work to be done by the nominated co-chairs prior to launching ERIP. We will keep you informed.
    We also submitted a CoARA-ERIP proposal for the 22nd RDA Plenary Meeting with the topic of ‘Research assessment and science integrity: A global approach with local impact for research policy and the development of digital tools’. See the submission here and also here in our RDA AIDV Repository.
    We submitted this past Friday an abstract and expression of interest for a science policy brief to the UN Interagency Task Team on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (IATT)’s MultiStakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (STI Forum) at the United Nations Headquarters, New York from 9 to 10 May 2024. The proposed title is ‘Research assessment and science integrity: A global approach with local impact for research policy and the development of digital tools’.
    We also submitted a proposal to the STI Forum for an AIDV science policy brief on ‘Developing a global approach for science policy with local impact for the development of digital tools in research assessment’.
    India’s National Conclave on ‘AI and Ethics: Perspectives from Industry and Academia’ to be held tomorrow Tuesday 20 February 2024 (15:30 to 17:30 IST; 10:00 to 12:00 noon UTC; 11:00 to 13:00 CET; 5:00 to 7:00 am EST)
    India’s National Conclave on ‘AI and Ethics: Perspectives from Industry and Academia’ will be held tomorrow Tuesday 20 February 2024 (15:30 to 17:30 IST; 10:00 to 12:00 noon UTC; 11:00 to 13:00 CET; 5:00 to 7:00 am EST) in person and online. (See the attached poster.) Contact: Gitanjali Yadav gy@nipgr.ac.in, a CoARA-ERIP and CODATA IDPC member. Further information and registration can be found here: https://semanticclimate.github.io/p/en/events/AI_Ethics/. This National Conclave of India examines the relationship between ethics, artificial intelligence, and the data ecosystem alongside the extent of their integration with one another and with society. It addresses key challenges for AI ethics in education and brings this in relation to challenges for AI in industry. The event will bring out how data science underpins the work of AI, while AI provides the power to automate tasks, create new data, uncover ‘hidden’ information to enable prediction or decision- making. India has established an AI Ethics Committee to develop guidelines for responsible AI adoption. We are also the world’s largest data consumer, emphasizing the importance for robust data protection regulations. Ethical AI is not just a regulatory requirement; it is becoming a competitive advantage for businesses. This session opens a dialogue on the fundamental frameworks of ethics in the data sciences and AI, focusing on the human dimensions of the technological impacts of our digitalised societies on fundamental human rights, social values, and legal frameworks in our differentiated yet shared human conditions. Such a dialogue is essential to ensure that AI is developed and used for the good of society. Alongside national experts from India, participation is also had from leading figures from Cambridge University and the Leibniz Association Research Alliance Open Science at the Open Science Lab, TIB – German National Library of Science and Technology.
    Force11 FSCI Summer Course on ‘Good governance for AI in scientific publications: Developing policy for reliability, ethics, and integrity’
    The proposal we did for a Force11 FSCI Summer Course has received high marks and will likely be accepted. This is a repeat and revision of the FSCI course we carried out online in August 2023. The title for this year is ‘Good governance for AI in scientific publications: Developing policy for reliability, ethics, and integrity’. It is planned to be held virtually from Tuesday 23 July to Thursday 25 July 2024 from 9:00 to 12:00 PDT / 16:00 and 19:00 UTC and then in-person at the UCLA Library in California from Monday 29 July to Wednesday 31 July. It will be followed by the Force 11 Annual Conference. The course allows us to further develop towards implementation the AIDV deliverables as well as confront them with some of the most important developments in the library and publication sciences.
    BEI Spring Online School (online, 25 to 30 March 2024)
    The Bioethics Education International (BEI) (contact Ana Lita alita@globalbioethics.org) has announced its Spring Online School from 25 to 30 March 2024 with the theme ‘Wars, Diseases and Bioethics’. See the attached ‘2024 Brochure’. Some of the courses related to AIDV interests. Bioethics Education International (BEI) invites participants (students and professionals) across the globe to attend the Spring Online School’s lectures and seminars, film screenings, and courses from special guest speakers. The faculty will include experts and scholars with international reputations who will lecture and conduct seminars on current and futuristic topics related to AI, science integrity, global health & medicine, and war & disease. Participants have the opportunity to engage in an intercultural dialogue over topics of interest in breakout rooms on the final day of the online school. Further online information can be found here.
