Agoria launched a free online course on the societal impact of artificial intelligence. The course offers a general insight into the various organisational, human, legal and ethical aspects that need to be taken into account when implementing artificial intelligence (AI) in a company.


These aspects are very important for those striving for AI applications that are sustainable and in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The course should therefore help to increase a company’s positive societal impact.

Julie de Bergeyck, Artificial Intelligence project leader at Agoria: “The increasing use of artificial intelligence in the business world evokes curiosity and enthusiasm among many people, but not without a little uncertainty. What does artificial intelligence (AI) mean for people’s job content and work organisation? What about the ethical aspects? And what does the law say? The ‘Sustainable AI in Business’ course is designed for anyone who is struggling with these questions and is packed with advice from experts and testimonies from entrepreneurs.

‘Sustainable AI in Business’ is an initiative by Agoria, developed for and by companies with support from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Flemish Agency for Innovation and Enterprise (Vlaio). Hilde Crevits, Flemish Vice-Minister-President and Minister of Economy and Innovation, gave the opening address today.
