March Insights Series: Ethical AI | What does it mean and why is it important?

Thursday, March 9, 2023 (4:00 PM - 6:30 PM) (MST)


Artificial intelligence has become a standard component of many of the tools that power both our personal and professional lives. But in many ways, its full potential has yet to be realized. As AI continues to evolve and become more widely adopted, how do we monitor the responsible growth and implementation of such a powerful technology? Especially as so much of the general population has little to no understanding of how it actually works, or the ways they’re currently interacting with it.

At this Insights Series we’ll explore ethical AI, a concept that just a few years ago was used mainly by academics, but is now a high priority for all organizations that collect and manage large amounts of data. Companies across the world are faced with solving the ethical dilemmas that arise when utilizing data, particularly when using that information to employ AI. Join us for a discussion around what’s next for AI and the ways that we can work to ensure it’s used responsibly.

Key Takeaways:

  • A discussion of the current state of AI
  • The definition of ethical AI and the conversation around how to build ethical AI processes
  • What's next for the evolution of ethical AI
