AGSM 2022 Professional Forum: Ethical AI in an Accelerating World

You are invited to the AGSM 2022 Professional Forum: Ethical AI in an Accelerating World. The annual AGSM Professional Forum is designed for alumni and invited guests who want to enhance their capacity to harness the potential of technologies like AI, blockchain, NFTs, and crypto to ‘do well’ and ‘do good’ and make informed decisions about technological investments.

Ethical AI in an Accelerating World will be led by subject matter experts from across the AGSM alumni and UNSW academic communities. Leaders from the corporate, for-purpose, government and start-up sectors will share their first-hand experiences as agents of change. An emphasis will be placed on how leadership behaviour impacts on industries, markets, and workforces, and the implications of inaction.

Session details:

Keynote with UNSW Laureate Fellow Toby Walsh

‘Machines Behaving Badly: The Morality of AI’

Professor Toby Walsh, a world-leading researcher in the field of artificial intelligence, explores the ethical considerations and unexpected consequences AI poses – Is Alexa racist? Can robots have rights? What happens if a self-driving car kills someone? What limitations should we put on the use of facial recognition?

Machines Behaving Badly is a thought-provoking look at the increasing human reliance on robotics and the decisions that need to be made now to ensure the future of AI is as a force for good, not evil.

Masterclass Synopsis

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is changing how decisions are made. The impact of AI to inform business and government decision making processes can cut both ways. Using a fact-based scenario this Masterclass and Panel will examine how a product that utilises AI is developed and deployed, and consider questions such as, who the relevant stakeholders are who should be consulted in such product development? What steps should companies and investors take steps to manage the ethical landscape of AI products? And what ethical or business and human rights frameworks might be useful in assessing the development and deployment of AI products?
