Responsible AI and why it matters

On Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020 at 3 p.m. join NYU Tandon’s Center for Responsible AI for a thought-provoking free webinar about the growing impacts of artificial intelligence in everyday life. 

Underlying structural inequities and pervasive biases often surface in the data sets that train AI systems. This can determine how data-driven and automated decisions unfairly funnel access to opportunity — and outcomes — in medicine, employment, education, and the law. 

To examine this challenge and contribute towards creative solutions with participants, the Center for Responsible AI will discuss the current state of the field, legislation in the pipeline, and emerging public education efforts. With an emphasis on AI in hiring and employment, the session will identify what “responsible AI” can look like, and include:

  • the risks of introducing, and then normalizing, new barriers  
  • how to move beyond harm mitigation to achieve “human-aware and trustworthy” systems
  • new research, standards, and tools (from technical advances and shifts in business practices to better audit mechanisms)
