Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly employed to make decisions affecting most aspects of our lives, particularly as digital transformation is accelerating in the face of COVID-19. Using technical systems such as machine learning, AI informs who receives an interview for a job, whether someone will be offered credit, which products are advertised to which consumers, as well as how government services and resources are allocated – such as which neighborhoods are targeted as “high risk” for crime, and more. AI represents the largest economic opportunity of our lifetime – estimated to contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030.

This is exciting and use of AI in predictions / decision-making can reduce human subjectivity, but it can also embed biases, producing discriminatory outcomes at scale and posing immense risks to business and society. Harnessing the transformative potential of AI requires addressing these biases. As developers, users and managers of AI systems, businesses play a central role in leading the charge while decisions of business leaders are of historic consequence. 

Join us at this event as we launch a groundbreaking playbook for business leaders on mitigating bias in AI and hear from leading stakeholders and experts on this critical topic.
