Deepak Paramanand on ethical artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence is proving its worth across all industries. Many businesses are adopting this technology to streamline operations and improve both employee and customer experience, however, there are concerns around the ethics of AI as the technology relies on the programmer in the training stage.
AI has the potential to either completely redefine the way businesses work with data – delivering hyper-relevant predictive and prescriptive models and business insights – or fall into a loop of self-propagating bias.
In his keynote session, ‘Doing AI, Ethically' at BizClik Media Groups' TECH LONDON LIVE from the Tobacco Dock in London, Deepak Paramanand, Executive Director of AI Research and Product Management at JP Morgan joined us to share his insights on ethical AI, how to do it correctly and how different solutions are appropriate for different organisations and AI algorithms.
