Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhances and amplifies human expertise, makes predictions more accurate, automates decisions and processes, optimizes employees’ time to focus on higher-value work, improves people’s overall efficiency, and will be KEY to helping Humankind travel to new frontiers and solve what feels now like insurmountable problems. But - we’ve got to get AI right. Can you trust the decisions made by an AI? Just because a decision is made by an AI does not mean that the results are morally or ethically sound. This talk will introduce listeners to very tangible and holistic steps that organizations and practitioners across diverse roles can take to nurture and develop truly responsible AI.
