MAMMOth: tackling gender, race and other biases in AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) offers great opportunities when it comes to automation, but at the same time, it brings risks of discrimination against minority groups. Until now, the use of AI has been in a 'constrained environment', meaning it does not reflect the complexity and diversity of the social world. The MAMMOth project aims to design a set of tools and techniques for the discovery and limitation of (multi-)discrimination in the use of AI. The project will work through a co-creation approach, involving communities of vulnerable and/or underrepresented groups in AI research from the outset.
I am developing a set of training activities to increase awareness about AI ethics & bias issues. Activities that are being developed:
- AI & Ethics: What do we want AI (not) to do? (workshop)
- Critical use of ChatGPT (workshop)
- Through the eyes of AI (Interactive exhibit)

Generation AI: Teaching kids about Artificial Intelligence
From 2021 to 2023, I was the project manager of the Erasmus+ project GENERATION AI.
The aim of the GENERATION AI project is to support educators and young learners in developing an evidence-based understanding of the complexities and basic principles of AI, computational thinking, and how they can be integrated in teaching learning to promote creative problem solving, resilience, and design thinking. A secondary goal of the project is to support teachers and learners to become more critical consumers of technology applications across their life span.
GENERATION AI OBJECTIVES
1. Support educators in understanding AI uses in everyday life
2. Prepare educators to teach their students about AI, its applications, strengths, and weaknesses, in line with DigiComp and DigiEDU
3. Support teachers and students in developing problem solving skills, computational thinking and design thinking involving AI tools and methods
4. Support teachers and students in developing their digital skills and develop a critical understanding of AI and its application to everyday life
IO1. GENERATION AI Toolkit for teachers
IO2. Professional Development Training for Teachers on AI-STEM education
IO3. GENERATION AI School Programme for Primary Education Students
IO4. Online Learning Platform and OER’ on AI-STEM educat
FUNDING AND PARTNERS
GENERATION AI received an EU grant from Erasmus+.
Collaboration between six partners from the Netherlands, Cyprus, Spain and Ireland. The University of Groningen is the coordinator of this project.
