AI Ethics Best Practices and the Future of Innovation

Ethical considerations and awareness of the unintended consequences of emerging technologies are transforming the way we relate to each other and with the companies offering these services.

Trust and transparency have become essential values for any business working with technology, and in this special event, we will be sharing some examples of best practices and perspectives from organizations working in AI ethics.

Come and join us on Wednesday 13th October from 4 pm at the Engine Shed for an evening of discussions and practical insights with experts from industry and academia.

2. The Data Hazard Labels Project. Jean Golding Institute. University of Bristol.

3. Ethical AI in practice. LV Insurance.

In order for businesses to minimize risk when deploying machine learning models, they must have a rigorous process of model governance & risk analysis which emphasises ethical considerations to avoid potential discrimination or similar negative results.

LV= have a mature data science team of over 40 and are leading the way when it comes to best practice when implementing machine learning into their systems and processes.

In this talk, Venura will give an overview of the areas businesses should consider when it comes to embedding AI ethics into their governance, working practices and culture.
