CDBA Speaker Series in Conversation with Academic Leaders – Arun Rai

“How Will the AI Genie Behave?”

We are witnessing the increasing ubiquity of AI, with accelerating deployment across task domains, entrepreneurial activity across industries, and embedding in core processes across digital platforms and firms. Alongside this increasing ubiquity of AI, we are encountering broad unintended consequences, both beneficial and harmful. These unintended consequences are arising from unexpected behaviours and downstream effects that emerge through interactions of AI agents with the environment and with other machine and human agents. To be able to control the actions of AI in ways that harvest its benefits while minimizing harm, we need to develop an integrated understanding of AI behaviour in the environments in which it is deployed.
