     HCAIM Consortium Members

    What is HCAIM?

    The HCAIM Consortium follows the definition of AI HLEG (European Commission’s High-level expert group on Artificial Intelligence), namely: The human-centric approach to AI strives to ensure that human values are central to how AI systems are developed, deployed, used and monitored, by ensuring respect for fundamental rights.

    This definition puts human values and rights in a central place in the AI development lifecycle. The profound consideration and assessment of those aspects, including risks, is necessary to be taken into account at every stage of AI development.
