Ethics top issue at World Summit AI

Ethics is raising a lot of interest at the World Summit AI in October in Amsterdam. Day two of the conference is packed with seven sessions on the ethics of artificial intelligence, with topics ranging from developing an industry code of conduct to biased AI and ethics gaps in AI.

At the World Summit AI a panel discussion will touch the issue of developing an industry code of conduct to manage the evolution of AI. The panel will consist of representatives from the Partnership on AI (an initiative by Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, IBM and Microsoft), Yale University and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence.

Other headlines are from the academic world. Berkeley professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Stuart Russell has a keynote speech about making AI beneficial and human compatible. Associate professors Joanna Bryson of the University of Bath and Virginia Dignum of Delft University of Technology will lead the session From biased AI to algorithmic equity.

Day two of the World Summit AI also include sessions on developing open AI, sources of bias in AI and standards for AI for developers.
