DAMA IA/MN December Chapter Presentation – Ethics and AI
December 21, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am CST
Join DAMA Iowa with host DAMA Minnesota and speaker Frank Kadwell on Ethics and AI.
AI and ML drive quickly in functionality but ethics and proper usage are not discussed. The lack of ethics is due to organizations needing to drive profits. This discussion will focus on Ethics in ML and AI and will describe how AI within organizations is focused on driving increased profits and social control. Additionally, there is disagreement on what is ethical AI since so much is driven by culture. Pew research interviewed experts in the field who see this trend continuing into and beyond 2030. There are organizations and non-profits that are working with the large AI companies like Microsoft, Google, IBM, among others to eliminate bias in AI. Additionally, research is being done to find ways to audit algorithms to eliminate bias. This topic will help attendees understand the ethical issues within AI and some ideas and progress being made to improve the ethics. Attendees will get an idea of how they can help contribute to ethical AI.
