Abstract. Artificial Intelligence plays an increasingly important role in many knowledge fields: computer science, technology, and other sciences such as health care, one of its most compelling applications. Artificial Intelligence has impacted arts, linguistics, law, sociology, society, and everyday lives. We are demanding many properties from the products of Artificial Intelligence: users of their application fields need trust and ask for fairness, accountability, and privacy. We overview the desired properties and recall the technology that enables Artificial Intelligence to satisfy them.

Bio. Rosa Meo held the Laurea Degree in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Torino and overcame the habilitation at the Engineering Profession in 1993. She held the PhD in Computer and Systems Engineering at Politecnico di Torino in 1997. She became a tenure track researcher in 1999 at Dipartimento di Informatica of Università di Torino and associate professor at the same Department in 2005. She enabled herself at the Italian Ministry of University Research (MUR) for the Full Professor role (PO) for the scientific disciplinary sectors of Computer Science (INF-01) and also for Engineering in Information Science (ING-INF-05). Rosa Meo’s research activity is in Data Mining, Machine Learning and Databases, in particular at the intersection of the design of query languages and of dedicated systems fitted to manage and analyse big data volumes, like the inductive databases, aiming at knowledge discovery from huge amount of data, today called big data. Many of her scientific works are the result of the application of Machine Learning and Data Mining to different domains in funded projects.
