As artificial intelligence becomes more pervasive in our day-to-day lives, addressing the ethical and moral implications of AI development has never been timelier. Many tech companies have, or are attempting to, implement AI ethics committees to scrutinize the development of AI, but ensuring the committee members’ impartiality can itself be problematic. In this session, we assemble our own AI ethics panel to debate the key questions facing industry:
- Can AI algorithms ever be truly free of bias?
- What are the implications of using facial recognition software?
- Should AI be used to enhance positive social change?
- Should we be concerned about autonomous weapons and the use of AI for military purposes?
