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.
