Her Majesty Queen Máxima will pay a working visit to the Centre of Expertise Applied Artificial Intelligence of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences on the morning of 5 October 2023. Her visit is dedicated to the responsible use and application of artificial intelligence (AI).

The rapid growth in the use of artificial intelligence presents the whole of society with dilemmas and ethical questions. To address these issues, the teaching and research staff of the seven labs of the Centre of Expertise Applied Artificial Intelligence work in close cooperation with business and civil society organisations towards the responsible application of AI.

Queen Máxima will visit the Smart Asset Management Lab, where she will talk to researchers and recent graduates about the added value of this close cooperation. She will be shown several installations including an ultra-sensitive fridge for storing medicine that can repair itself using AI.

Social impact

Queen Máxima will also be informed about cooperation involving AI and media and democracy and responsibly applied AI, which focuses on issues of user dialogue and ownership of AI technology. She will then talk about the social impact of current and future applications with AUAS researchers and partners from civic society, discussing questions such as what does artificial intelligence mean for the future of work and our general welfare, and what the Netherlands excels at in AI and the policies which can strengthen this. They will also discuss the European Union and international perspectives on the application of AI, and what its threats and opportunities are for the Netherlands.
