Our Next Seminar

Title: Ethical Artificial Intelligence

Date: Thursday 22 July 2021: 2.30 pm

Contents

What is ethical, or responsible, artificial intelligence (AI) ? In essence, we can identify three concerns/issues : “the moral behaviour of humans as they design, make, use and treat artificially intelligent systems.” “A concern with the behaviour of machines, in machine ethics” – for example, computational ethics. ” “The issue of a possible singularity due to superintelligent AI” – a fascinating glimpse into the future as computers might ‘take over’. Is this still science fiction ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethics_of_artificial_intelligence#Singularity

This seminar encompasses important topics for Knowledge Management and Information Management  practitioners. Topics will include ‘bias’ in the machine, in machine learning, in the content cycle, in the taxonomy, in the text analytics, in the algorithms  and, of course, in the real world. Critically, where do knowledge organisation systems fit in and how can practitioners play a role in creating ethical artificial intelligence ?  Should companies begin to develop an AI ethics strategy that is publicly available ?

The speaker will be Ahren Lehnert  – Senior Manager, Text Analytics Solutions of Synaptica.com

Please note that this seminar will be a virtual one, using the Zoom platform. More details will be made available to those registering and a link will be sent on the day before the meeting.
