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 regulations, ethical guidelines, and good engineering practices are critical in the ever-growing development and deployment of AI technology.
