Stand Up for Ethical AI – Bringing Trust Back into AI Through Open Source!


As businesses move beyond experimentation to full-blown AI projects across the enterprise, they’re recognizing that there’s more to successful implementations than simply having the right datasets, AI models, and scalability. The application of AI algorithms in domains such as criminal justice, credit scoring, and hiring holds great promise. At the same time, it raises legitimate concerns about dimensions of trust, including fairness, robustness, and explainability. In this talk we are going to address existing efforts in the arena, and how to build ethical and trusted AI artifacts in a scalable and repeatable way leveraging open source tools.
