Event Details

Chances are you’ve already encountered some form of artificial intelligence (AI) today. From chatbots, to facial recognition apps, robots and self-driving cars, we have well and truly entered the new age of technology. But some big questions remain about AI’s implications on privacy, equity, fairness and transparency.

The emergence of worrying examples of AI use has led to a burgeoning collection of ethical frameworks from academic, industry and government parties. But, while they’re promising, they often amount to little more than high-level guidelines. What’s really lacking is the translation of these guides into practical tools that industry can actually use to ensure artificial intelligence solutions deliver value, without putting people at risk.

In this interactive panel discussion, you’ll not only have to chance to meet UTS’s own robots, but you’ll be pushed to ponder your own ethical questions around AI. As you do, our experts, UTS Professor Fang Chen – a maverick in exploring the interconnection between AI design and application, and automation, bias, transparency, trust, user behavior and impact – along with collaborators from law and science will dig deeper into what’s right and what’s wrong when it comes to AI. (Spoiler alert: you may be surprised by some of their views!)
