What happens if there are unintended consequences of AI? For example, when AI incorrectly identifies someone in a criminal investigation due to inaccuracies in AI-based facial recognition technology? Or when you lose a job because a hiring AI system believes you have low EQ? Or when voice recognition in a bank’s customer-service system can’t decipher a caller’s accent?

For all the good that AI can bring, responsible tech companies must recognise, prepare for, and mitigate the potential unintended, harmful effects. That’s why ethics is foundational to AI.

Companies and organisations are increasingly offering programmes to help employees put ethics at the core of their respective workflows. These programmes are designed to empower the entire organisation to think critically about every step of the process of building AI solutions, and perhaps most importantly — the end user must have all the tools needed to use AI responsibly.

As organisations turn to technology in their response to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever that we continue advancing AI that is safe and inclusive. A study in BMJ found that of 66 models designed to predict the risk of COVID-19 infection, all performed poorly, were at high risk of bias, or were too optimistic about expected performance.

Join us for this fascinating webinar with leading industry experts.

This event is jointly organised by ORF and Salesforce.
