Preparing for the ethical dilemmas of the AI era


09/14/2018 - 14:00 to 15:00

The world is experiencing extraordinary advances in artificial intelligence. There are new applications in finance, defense, health care, criminal justice, and education, among other areas. Algorithms are improving spell-checkers, voice recognition systems, ad targeting, and fraud detection. Yet at the same time, there is concern regarding the ethical values embedded within AI and the extent to which algorithms respect basic human values. Ethicists worry about a lack of transparency, poor accountability, unfairness, and bias in automated tools.

After the session, speakers will take audience questions.
