AI and the Diversity Challenge

Speaker: Swathi Sadagopan from Munk Fellow, Deloitte

Wednesday, Apr. 17, 12–1 PM

Artificial intelligence is taking up all sorts of tasks that would have been hard to imagine just a few years ago: drafting legal documents, deploying police officers, even writing news articles. But, if these systems are going to effective, not to mention fair, they need the steady human hand of a programmer who can spot the problems and make necessary adjustments. This not only demands technical proficiency but also cultural competency. In this webinar, through examples, case studies and analogies, we’ll explore what is AI, the promise it holds, where it can fail and how might we build safe and reliable AI.
