Artificial intelligence is increasingly used in many sectors of the economy. It is at the heart of numerous discussions as it raises technological, regulatory, ethical, employment and policy-related challenges. It is likely already present in your workplace in some form or shape, visible or invisible. For all these reasons, it is crucial for trade unions to study AI and increase both our awareness and knowledge about the topic.
The ETUI Education Department and the Foresight Unit are organising their third training course on AI, which will focus on two central issues: the explainability of algorithms and worker surveillance. The training will be held from 14 to 16 February 2022 in Brussels, Belgium.
To help address these complex topics, the course will rely on a series of high-level speakers and use gamification, understood as the use of typical elements of game playing (rules of play, point scoring, challenges, competition, etc.), to engage participants and address AI from a problem- solving perspective.
Please join us and be part of a growing community of trade unionists eager to learn about AI and address the challenges it raises for workers.
- to identify the major issues on AI and data that are essential for TUs to learn;
- to experience and improve the ETUI game on AI;
- to develop the key elements that trade unions need to understand “the explainability of AI”.
Working languages are: English, French, a third language will be added based on the participants' needs.
This is a technical training course. Good knowledge and experience of the topic are required. It is intended for trade union officers, leaders or workers representatives specifically working on artificial intelligence.
