About the Presentation

Today’s computing power and big data capabilities are driving the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled technologies at unprecedented speed and for many of us, business decisions relating to the development and/or use of AI are now front and center. At the same time, AI-enabled technologies are facilitating discrimination, raising questions on privacy and security, spurring change in transparency and accountability, fueling fears about job replacement, and feeding competition on the international stage.

Leadership now demands asking and answering the hard question: How do we use AI in a manner that best benefits humanity? Using common decisions and dilemmas now facing business leaders and managers as a backdrop, Monica Lopez deep dives into why we need AI ethics and how to leverage human values to lead with a strong moral compass.
