CASMI Recognizes Research Focused on Preventing, Mitigating AI Harms

As companies and organizations continue releasing artificial intelligence (AI) systems into the world, researchers are working to ensure technologies are safe. The Northwestern Center for Advancing Safety of Machine Intelligence (CASMI) is supporting these efforts through the AI Incidents and Best Practices track at the Thirty-Sixth Annual Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI-24).

The creators of the AI Incident Database worked with CASMI and IAAI to update the track at the international conference, which is co-located with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). The IAAI-24 track emphasizes AI incidents, which are defined as alleged harm or near harm events to people, property, or the environment where an AI system is implicated. The four research papers accepted into the track analyze the factors related to AI incidents and the best practices for preventing or mitigating their recurrence.
