The creation of educational resources, such as a manual for understanding ethics in the field of data and artificial intelligence, and the implementation of an e-learning platform with the possibility of validating or certifying the skills acquired are two of the main objectives of the Erasmus + project "Making Adult Education lively through Artificial Intelligence (LivAI)", led by the directors of the Cuatroochenta Chair in Artificial Intelligence, Health and Wellbeing of the Universitat Jaume I. LivAI is aimed at the adult population, mainly educators, educational institutions and adult learners.
Another aim of the programme is the dissemination and exploitation of the results through the implementation of an online and offline dissemination campaign throughout Europe, the organisation of national hackathons in several participating countries and the creation of a European network for ethical AI.
«The project consists of the development of an artificial intelligence manual for adults and from there a web platform will be created to provide training in artificial intelligence for adults».
In addition to the Universitat Jaume I of Castelló de la Plana, represented by the Cátedra Cuatroochenta and the GIANT group, other organisations and institutions in the field of education and new technologies from countries such as Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Switzerland and Greece are participating in the project.
