Life in the AI Era project brings you a new learning option to enrich your competencies

Artificial intelligence has emerged in almost every area of life in the last decade due to the total amount of data, the development of computing capabilities, algorithms, and the increasingly seamless interconnection of different techniques. These fundamentally change the future of the world of work.
Workers need to know about the relationship and collaboration between humans and AI.

This new MOOC promotes extensive knowledge, critical reflection and debate on AI and its key impacts on society, addressing the lecturers, higher education students, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) students and other interested stakeholders, thus broadening the understanding of the main developments and the future of AI.

Life in the AI Era project offers this course freely online, providing a platform for interactive forums, and learners may self-organize their participation and learning pace

Life in the AI Era project brings you a new learning option to enrich your competencies

HEDYTalks is a collection of feature-length films or documentaries, a collation of influential AI audio-visual related tools, including films & expert talks, which are to be produced under Hedy.

The toolkit is a complement to self-based learning or to launch AI motivating debates. This visual innovation helps to select the existing resources (fictional/factual narratives & ted talks) and to produce knowledge.

Engagement and learning, allied with the AI’s extensive interest, enables the toolkit to reach a wide audience that goes far beyond those directly involved in or covered by the partners’ networks.


Toolkit to be available in HU, PT, BG, ES, CA, DE and EN

HEDY Booklet


The Booklet is an essay defining the HEDY position on Life in the AI era and the rationales for that position. In this work, we describe and present the results of our two-fold approach to building our rationals about the challenges, opportunities and expected impact of AI in four areas:

  • business,
  • governance,
  • skill & competencies, and
  • people & lifestyle.

The two-fold approach consists of collecting information from two sources:

  • Literature survey, and
  • Interaction with people.

The first source consists of collecting the current state of knowledge about the impact of AI.

The second source was a mixed approach of questionnaires and focus groups conducted in five European countries with AI experts or non-experts. These two sources uniquely contribute to AI panorama by combining state-of-the-art research with other social actors’ opinions and debated questions, concerns, and ideas. The main conclusion is that AI is a technology that, in its design and development, is so far removed from everyday life that experts believe that the population is not trained enough to decide how to use AI. Although, at the same time, it is considered necessary for citizens to make decisions and determine the course of AI. For this reason, we point out the necessity to train citizens in operation, potential and possible effects of AI. We need, therefore, to provide teachings, courses and training in schools and higher education institutes to facilitate the use and adoption of AI for young people and future generations.

“Human interaction is important while having AI. We should also preserve some freedom and decision-making process as humans”
