FARI is an independent non-profit initiative in the field of artificial intelligence under the guidance of two Brussels universities: the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the Universit├ę libre de Bruxelles (ULB). It gathers the interdisciplinary expertise of 10 research groups working on AI, data, robotics, social sciences, ethics, and law. The initiative aims to help citizens, politicians, businesses and non-profit organizations address contemporary challenges in the Brussels-Capital region, Belgium and Europe.

FARI brings together leading and future researchers on projects that serve the city in the field of AI (explainable and reliable), data (open), and robotics (human-centered). It also builds bridges with governments, industry, and citizens to promote sustainable AI, with a focus on urban and public priority areas such as health, mobility, climate, and energy, and a participatory and inclusive society.

weKONEKT.brussels supports FARI’s mission and collaborates in the framework of education, urban engagement and art. Visit the website of FARI for an overview of its initiatives and the most up-to-date news and activities.
