Keeping Up with Artificial Intelligence - AI Ethics & Bias

Artificial Intelligence… it’s more than just a buzzword!

You may have seen the various articles in the news about race and gender-biased AI algorithms. Or perhaps you’ve heard stories of AI used to track people’s personal movements on social media. Whatever the story was, it’s not exactly comforting.  

This presentation aims to cover some of the core issues surrounding the ethical debate with AI, open up discussions about how to overcome these issues, and broaden our understanding of the technology.

Participants will:

  1. Delve into case studies for biased AI
  2. Promote ethical solutions for AI development
  3. Evaluate the privacy concerns of AI in everyday use
  4. Navigate the current landscape of AI policies

Note that this workshop will not discuss the mechanics of AI, but rather its implications on society.
