Professor Brian Ray led an interdisciplinary team of AI experts at the first annual EU AI Act Grand Challenge hosted by St. Gallen University in July 2022. Ray's team -- AI in the Public Interest or AIPI -- included Erman Ayday (CWRU Engineering), Erika George (Utah Law), Anisa Halimi (IBM Ireland), Charles Helleputte (Squire Sanders France/Belgium) and Hadrien Pouget (Carnegie Endowment). AIPI was one of 12 teams selected internationally to compete in the two-stage competition to assess multiple AI systems for compliance with the draft European Union AI Act. In Stage 1, the teams evaluated three robotic systems that incorporated AI autonomy and mobility systems as part of the ARCHE Robotics Conference. In Stage 2, the teams evaluated three additional AI systems across two days at the University of St. Gallen Square.
