2022 NSF SafeTAI Workshop

Welcome to the 2022 NSF SafeTAI Workshop Homepage!

The aim of the 2022 NSF Workshop on Safety and Trust in Artificial Intelligence (AI) Enabled Systems is to identify emerging issues, challenges, basic research questions, and potential approaches to study and address safety and trust in AI-enabled systems across application domains. The workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry, and government research that are working in areas such as AI, machine learning (ML), formal methods, programming languages, safety, and beyond, as well as application domains such as autonomous systems, business, and beyond. The main deliverable of the workshop is a report summarizing the discussions and findings of the workshop, which will be made publicly available following the event.

The workshop will be a two-day event Thursday, September 22nd - Friday, 23rd 2022 held virtually
over zoom with a keynote speaker each day and parallel breakout sessions.

Fostering the development of collaborations and the exchange of ideas between the formal methods, AI/ML, and broader research communities is critical and may lead to advances in methods that improve both AI/ML and formal methods, as well as the broader concerns about safety and trust of AI-enabled systems across science, engineering, and society. The workshop encourages participation and perspectives from persons coming from underrepresented groups.
