Ethics in AI a gamechanger for Companies
The Eisenhower Fellowship journey went into the third week with this week theme becoming future workforce, AI ethics, and robotics business.
Moved on to Boston to meet the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University. Dr. Ryan Budish, senior researcher discussed ethics surrounding AI solutions and challenges that must be solved. This meeting was followed up with the Executive Director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, Dr Robert Laubacher to discuss very interesting new research on how human group interaction possibly can be modelled.
I also managed to meet AMD’s expert on Computer Vision software.
A visit to Mass Robotics, a robotics startup grind facility in Boston was also accomplished. I met the Baxter powered Red Sox robot for baseball practise and saw one of the contending transportation platforms for Elon Musk’s Hyperloop.
Finished off the week in Austin, meeting AI experts at University of Texas, local AI business developers, and the Executive Director Larry Temple of the Texas Workforce Commission.
There are many takeaways from this week but the biggest is probably this conclusion. There will be an advantage for companies and institutions that master the Ethical aspects of AI and legislation and standardization is emerging based on a very complex scenario.
For the EF project work, three experiments of Corporate Social Responsibility are emerging to tie in the Future of Work with the robotics and automation business.
The trip continues now to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Phoenix.
