On Wednesday 12 april 2023 the Awards for the most Brilliant Failure in the field of AI in the public sector were presented for the second time during the Dutch AI congress. This election is an initiative of the Dutch AI Coalition in collaboration with the Institute for Brilliant Failures.
Creating awareness for the importance of learning and experimenting with AI is the reason to pay attention to AI projects in a positive way. The possibilities with AI are enormous, but it does not happen automatically and it is important to learn from all experiences, so that we can use socially relevant applications of AI efficiently, effective and responsible manner. Two prizes have been awarded, an audience- and a jury prize. The jury prize was awarded by Paul Iske, jury chairman, and also Chief Failure Officer of the Institute of Brilliant Failures. The public award was presented by Marieke van Putten, chairman of the Public Services working group at the Dutch AI Coalition.
