Hold the date for our first breakfast briefing of Q3 when we will discuss the "Ethics of AI".

Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are increasingly being used to fuel the Digital Transformation of enterprises. Analysts are predicting that by 2021, 75% of commercial enterprise apps will use AI. Today, AI is being used extensively across every vertical in everything from HR and People Analytics to Robotic Process Automation in Manufacturing.

However, alongside the many examples of AI powering successful digital transformations, some problematic scenarios have emerged of AI applications delivering biased decisions or discriminating against minorities. Such outcomes have not just broken ethical norms, but have had considerable negative impact on organisations' employee relations, customer satisfaction and share price. This event, aimed primarily at business decisions makers, will outline some of the areas of concern, related emerging regulations, potential pitfalls to avoid and emerging industry best practices to ensure the safe and ethical delivery of AI applications.

We will be joined by Clare Dillon an Ethics In AI Evangelist, Cronan McNamara CEO of Creme Global and organiser's of the Predict Conference in October, and other domain experts in the field of AI to discuss and inform you on this topical subject. Booking details to follow.
