In the first half of 2020, the COVID-19 pan­de­mic has impac­ted many socie­ties and eco­no­mies. Com­pa­red with the 1918 influ­en­za pan­de­mic, con­tem­pora­ry socie­ties are both more vul­nerable due to the high degree of con­nec­ti­vi­ty and more resi­li­ent due to our tech­no­lo­gi­cal and sci­en­ti­fic abi­li­ties to under­stand the virus, to con­trol its spread and to con­tain it even­tual­ly. The use of a ran­ge of dif­fe­rent AI-rela­ted tech­no­lo­gies in con­trol­ling the epi­de­mic is the focus of this seri­es. While this emer­ging deve­lo­p­ment has both posi­ti­ve and nega­ti­ve out­co­mes, the con­tro­ver­sies in inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry fiel­ds requi­red dis­cus­sion and reflec­tion in order to draw the les­sons for buil­ding more resi­li­ent socie­ties in Asia and Euro­pe. For that pur­po­se, Asia-Euro­pe Con­sor­ti­um for AI Rese­arch (AECAIR) orga­ni­zes a seri­es of webi­nars around three the­ma­tic panels.

Asia-Euro­pe Con­sor­ti­um for AI Rese­arch (AECAIR) is a plat­form, initia­ted by part­ners in Asia and Euro­pe and spon­so­red by insti­tu­ti­ons inclu­ding Kon­rad Ade­nau­er Stif­tung (KAS) Shang­hai Office (  and Intel­li­sia Insti­tu­te, an inde­pen­dent think tank based in Guang­zhou. This plat­form aims to offer a thin­king space for social sci­ence rese­arch – across the Eura­si­an con­ti­nent and bey­ond – in order to gather rese­ar­chers, experts, and prac­ti­tio­ners in the expan­ding field of AI aiming to chan­nel their ana­ly­sis regu­lar­ly to poli­cy makers. It aims at fos­te­ring and sti­mu­la­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons as well as public con­ver­sa­ti­ons about the poten­ti­als and limits of AI.
