Hybrid-Human Artificial Intelligence (HHAI22) was the first international conference on hybrid-human AI, focusing on intelligence systems that work proactively with humans to enhance human capabilities and empower citizens in their daily lives.

 

Organised by the Dutch Hybrid Intelligence Centre and the European HumaneAI Network, HHAI22 gathered students and academics at the Vrije Universiteit for a lively week of research events, including a Hackathon, paper presentations, talks, Q&As, demo sessions and networking events. Talks from Paul Lukowicz, Wendy Mackay and other industry experts highlighted building human-computer partnerships and the importance of creating trust and transparency when designing interactive AI systems. The main take-home of the event? Enhance human intelligence with AI – don’t replace it.
