Artificial intelligence can tackle not only computational tasks like analysing data, but creative tasks as well.
And while the technology could have wide-ranging applications in our work and our lives, we also need to be vigilant of the potential dangers of using it, including biases, discrimination, and loss of privacy.
On 14th March 2023 at Devon House, Northeastern University London will host a panel discussion on how proper regulations, ethical guidelines, and good engineering practices are critical in the ever-growing development and deployment of AI technology.
At When technology goes wrong: navigating the perils of AI in modern society, you’ll hear from experts on NU London’s expert faculty across degree fields like computer science, data science, artificial intelligence, and bias and ethics. Then, enjoy a networking session with refreshments at our new, state-of-the-art campus in the heart of London.
