Regulating Artificial Intelligence: How to Control the Unexplainable

Graham School

  – 08:00 PM

The technologies we broadly call “AI” are changing industries, from finance to advertising, medicine and logistics. But the biggest hurdle to the adoption of artificial intelligence lies in how well this so-called black box technology can be governed and controlled. This talk will suggest a framework for how artificial intelligence can be created, tested, and deployed ethically—and how its benefits can be harnessed fully in medicine and beyond.
