Imperial College Computing Department are hosting a public event on 26 January 2018 on the subject ‘Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (AI)’. It is an important subject, with AI not only a new frontier in business and technology but also in ethics and risk assessment.
The event will debate social and ethical implications of AI, what the world will look like in the next ten years and how we can make sure it goes in a positive direction for the sake of our citizens and humanity in general. Chaired by Ian Sample, Science Editor of the Guardian, the event will involve experts in AI, ethics, philosophy, theology and public policy, including:
• Reverend Dr Malcolm Brown, Church of England
• Professor Alan Winfield, Robot Ethics, Bristol University
• Dr Joanna Bryson, University of Bath, AXA Awardee for Responsible AI
• Professor Maja Pantic, Affective Computing, Imperial College
The ethical implications of using AI in everything from detecting people, optimising logistics, providing translations and even composing art will be explored- highlighting how artificial intelligence systems are not only changing what and how we are doing business but also transforming who we are.
The audience will be invited to ask questions in a highly interactive discussion.
The event is being organised in collaboration with the Guardian, the media sponsor, and with other partners including Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence.
