The AIRES Mission

AIRES at PUCRS is committed to promoting and enhancing The AIRES Mission. Our mission is to focus on educating tomorrow's AI leaders in ethical AI principles to ensure AI is created ethically and responsibly.


As technology advances at an exponential rate, we must begin thinking about how AI will interact with and impact society at different facets of daily life, with the focus on ethical implications and its implementation within AI systems.


Notably, the development and involvement in AI ethics by students and professionals has been relatively nascent. The foresight of how important it is to regulate AI through the lens of ethical discussion and implementation is of paramount significance within the setting of the rapid development of AI and how it has already permeated our daily lives.


As such, the AI Robotics Ethics Society was founded in 2018 at UCLA (USA, Los Angeles) by Aaron Hui to promote the awareness and importance of ethical implementation and regulation of AI. AIRES is now a nonprofit organization with chapters at USC (University of Southern California), Caltech (California Institute of Technology), Stanford University, Cornell University, Brown University, and the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil).
