Who We Are
A group of people deeply passionate about AI and equipped with a vision to educate others about the impacts of this technology.
At LAIF, we believe that we have a responsibility to bridge the gap between people and AI by making others conscious of its profound implications, enabling a safe future coexistence with AI.
The story of Leuven AI forum started from Nick Bostrom and his TED talk on the long-term impact of all forms of intelligence on society. This is a field in which different views are very polarized; there was very little debate on the middle ground of this topic. That is why we felt the need to establish a community on AI development that brings people from different disciplines together. This would create a platform where the debate could thrive.
We saw that there was a great enthusiasm from students within the Master of Artificial intelligence at KU Leuven, but it was very hard to establish structure and continuity in their interactions, as this is only a one-year program. This led to the creation of the non-profit, Leuven AI Forum, at the end of 2019. With the founding of this organisation, a community of like-minded AI enthusiasts finally materialized.
We organise TEDxLeuven events several times a year and you can get the chance to be involved too! You can take part in the planning of the event as well as the on-the-day tasks.
