  • Business value: how AI becomes part of the products themselves, improves performance across the value chain, or enables ecosystems and collaboration with new markets.
  • Ethical value: how to foster explicability and responsible AI to guarantee social fairness in respect of human freedoms and dignity.
  • Societal value: how AI contributes to environmental sustainability, encourages a new social contract based on accountability.
  • Algorithmic value: developing AI techniques and algorithms with increasingly superior performance while attending to the explainability of such techniques to assure that the other kinds of value can be enabled.
