Umeå University

Umeå University is one of Sweden's largest higher education institutions with over 37,000 students and about 4,700 employees. The University offers diverse high-quality education and world-leading research in several fields. The ongoing societal transformation and large green investments in northern Sweden create enormous opportunities and complex challenges. For Umeå University, conducting research about – and in the middle of – a society in transition is what it is all about, but also about delivering education to enable regions to expand quickly and sustainably.

Role within COMFORT

Umeå University leads one Work Package on the trustworthiness of AI models. There are four main objectives: 1) to identify trustworthiness issues (e.g., explainability, bias, and privacy) for multimodal architectures; 2) to design and develop baseline trustworthiness models; 3) to implement advanced trustworthiness models on text and image data; 4) to validate the models with stakeholders and visualise the ethical governance procedure.
