As AI has gained momentum and currency in the mainstream business conversation, awareness of the potential dark sides of machine activity has brought a new urgency to solving a host of potential ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges.
Clare Gillan Huang, Professor at Babson College’s Technology, Operations, and Information Management program will moderate a conversation with researchers and executives who confront these ethical challenges every day.
David Weinberger joins the conversation from Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society. The Center has active projects studying issues across the spectrum of AI activity, from explainable algorithms and transparency regarding training bias, to urgent regulatory demands on governments at all levels, to quality assurance for online media, to the many issues raised by the emergence of self-driving cars and other vehicles.
Bill Kassler, MD, MPH, FACP is the Deputy Chief Health Officer and Lead Population Health Officer at IBM’s Watson Health organization. Watson Health’s focus is on providing cognitive solutions to help advance the quality of practice in multiple areas of the healthcare landscape, including: genomics, drug discovery, oncology, care management, and social program management to assist government agencies in their provision of health and human services.
You will want to hear what these three researchers, thought leaders, and executive practitioners have to say about the most pressing challenges of bringing AI into the world in a climate of ethical integrity.
