As AI acts increasingly more autonomously and becomes broader in its application, it is vital that considerations of ethics and safety are prioritised. While these are not always easy conversations to have, nor are the solutions straightforward, we must strive for far greater diversity in the field of AI expertise to ensure the technology’s ethical success. Without stringent controls, AI is liable to stereotype and amplify sexist and racist biases, reinforcing existing social inequalities for people who are already vulnerable. In response to these concerns, ethical frameworks for AI are now being written around the world. This eye-opening session will provide an informed perspective on how we can work together to eliminate algorithmic bias and democratise AI.
Attend this session to increase your understanding of how to promote diversity in AI and combat algorithmic bias.
