AI Governance, Big Data, and Ethics Summit

Monday, June 24 | 9:00 am – 12:50 pm

The rapid acceleration of AI technology has led to a global call for AI governance and ethics.  One of the core issues facing the adoption of AI is centered on how to ensure that these advanced technologies can be deployed in a fair and non-biased way that can serve the betterment of mankind.  Currently, there are hundreds of efforts underway globally, working in silos, to standardize around how business and governments can engage in ethical AI practices.  AI Governance, Big Data and Ethics brings together a key group of global thought leaders who will present the challenges, discuss solutions and lead networking roundtables to help global government and industry leaders better collaborate with each.
