Data Science & Law Forum 3.0

Denmark

15 April 2021

Enabling responsible development of artificial intelligent technologies is one of the major challenges we face as the field moves from research to practice. Researchers and practitioners from different disciplines have highlighted the ethical and legal challenges posed by the use of machine learning in many current and future real-world applications.  Now there are calls from across the industry (academia, government, and industry leaders) for technology creators to ensure that AI is used only in ways that benefit people and “to engineer responsibility into the very fabric of the technology.”   Overcoming these challenges and enabling responsible development is essential to ensure a future where AI and machine learning can be widely used. In this talk, we are discussing the latest practical approaches to responsible AI and demonstrate how our latest open source and cloud integrated responsible ML capabilities empower data scientists and developers to understand and improve ML models better. 

Responsible use of data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a crucial element in today’s tech policy debates. The ultimate question is how we ensure technology benefits society and citizens – not the other way around. Companies and government authorities alike are faced with tough questions on how to maximize the benefits of AI for innovation across sectors – ranging from healthcare and welfare services to tax payments and the future transport – while reducing potential harms associated with high-risk use cases. Yet there is a growing need to move from normative principles to concrete steps. In recent years, the Government of Denmark, in close partnerships with industry and researchers, have taken a number of steps to operationalize data ethics. Organized jointly by the Danish Chamber of Commerce and Microsoft, this panel discussion will explore specific examples from both government and businesses to shed light on we operationalize responsible AI through public-private partnerships.
