Assessing Trustworthy AI in times of COVID-19.
Deep Learning for predicting a multi-regional score conveying the degree of lung compromise in COVID-19 patients.
The AI system aims to help radiologists to estimate and communicate the severity of damage in a patient’s lung from Chest X-rays. It has been experimentally deployed in the radiology department of the Public Hospital (ASST Spedali Civili) in Brescia (Italy) since December 2020 during pandemic time.
In cooperation with Department of Information Engineering and Department of Medical and Surgical Specialties, Radiological Sciences, and Public Health – University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy.

Pilot Project: Assessment for Responsible Artificial Intelligence together with Rijks ICT Gilde -Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK)- and the province of Fryslân (The Netherlands)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is in more and more aspects of our lives. The technology – based on algorithms and data – is in numerous devices and can be useful in solving social issues. For example, about energy, sustainability or poverty. As a government, we have an exemplary role. If we want to seize the opportunities of AI, then important questions about ethics, technology, transparency and the possible effects of AI applications on our society must be answered.
The pilot “Assessment for Responsible AI” is a step in this process. During a six-months pilot, Rijks ICT Gilde (Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK)) in cooperation with the province of Fryslân and AI authority Prof. Zicari and his team investigated a deep learning algorithm in practice.
” The results of this pilot are of great importance for the entire Dutch government, because we have developed a best practice with which administrators can really get started, and actually incorporate ethical values into the algorithms used.”

First World Z-inspection® Conference. Ateneo Veneto, March 10-11, 2023, Venice, Italy -CONFERENCE READER
The interdisciplinary meeting welcomed over 60 international scientist and experts from AI, ethics, human rights and domains like healthcare, ecology, business or law.
– The Pilot Project: “Assessment for Responsible Artificial Intelligence” together with Rijks ICT Gilde – part of the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK)- and the province of Fryslân (The Netherlands);
– The assessment of the use of AI in times of COVID-19 at the Brescia Public Hospital (“ASST Spedali Civili di Brescia“).
Two panel discussions on “Human Rights and Trustworthy AI” and “How do we trust AI?“ provided an interdisciplinary view on the relevance of data and AI ethics in the human rights and business context.
The main message of the conference was the need of a Mindful Use of AI (#MUAI).
This premiere World Z-Inspection® Conference was held in cooperation with Global Campus of Human Rights and Venice Urban Lab and was supported by Arcada University of Applied Science, Merck, Roche and Zurich Insurance Company.
