Human+ Tech Talks: The Ethical Dimension of Human-Centric AI

Tuesday, 13 September 2022, 1 – 2pm

Human+ Tech Talks: The Ethical Dimension of Human-Centric AI

An online roundtable discussion hosted by Professor Vincent Wade to launch the Human+ Tech Talks series.

From insurance and jobs to dating and autonomous driving, artificial intelligence technology is being integrated across all areas of our lives. As this technology continues to receive widespread acceptance, it is important to consider the biases that may be encoded within them. Even though machines are perceived as fair, they are ultimately created by humans. What kind of human biases can these AI solutions then perpetrate? How can these biases affect the lives of communities from minority or marginalised backgrounds? What are the steps scientists need to take to avoid unfairness? What kind of collaborations, questions and considerations do we need to make while creating fair and unbiased AI solutions?

Speakers with highly accomplished academic and scientific backgrounds contemplate such questions with the aim of discussing in-depth both the promises and perils of AI from an ethical standpoint.

Who are the speakers?
Vincent Wade, Chair of Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin, and Director of the SFI ADAPT Centre; Linda Hogan, Professor of Ecumenics in the School of Religion, Trinity College Dublin; David Lewis, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin, and Deputy Director of the SFI ADAPT Centre.
