“Recent breakthroughs in deep learning have created the illusion that deep learning will solve all of AI. This illusion is false as truly intelligent machines should not only learn but also reason, just like humans do. Self-driving cars, for instance, must comply with, and hence, reason about traffic regulations. The long-term promise of AI can only be realised by fostering all AI techniques. A too narrow focus is like claiming that the important invention of rubber tires in the automobile industry could also lead to better engines.”

Strategically located in the capital of EU, CLAIRE Brussels Office plays a crucial role in the strategic planning and decision-making processes for the CLAIRE Network.

We are currently hosted by FARI AI Institute for the Common Good, with physical office at BeCentral – Brussels’ digital revolution hub backed by 60 tech companies right in the city’s central station. CLAIRE Brussels is backed by eight steering committee members composed of AI experts from Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven), UCLouvain, Ghent University, and University of Liège. CLAIRE Brussels is also actively involved in the confederation’s industry network projects, communication and outreach, as well as in several task forces that forward CLAIRE’s vision for a human-centred European AI.
