Should AI care about Ethics?


The 21st-century AI revival has brought with it a promise of unlimited potential, for good and for ill. While the debate about the feasibility of AI rages on, it is already clear that just the present and foreseeable machine-learning technology will transform life and society as we know it.

Over the next 20 years, it is expected that nearly half of the current employment will be displaced. Meanwhile, companies and governments are rapidly deploying AI-enabled applications, ranging from ad targeting to surveillance to social credit scoring to crime prediction.

This has triggered widespread concern over AI and its impact on society, with many calling for regulation of the technology and adoption of ethical standards for its applications.

In the second talk of “Speaker Series on Moral and Leadership”, Dr. Christopher Cuong Nguyen, President and CEO at Arimo, a Panasonic Company will review the known and potential impact of AI.

Is it different from past technological shifts? If yes, why is that so, how should we think about it, what standards might we adopt to manage this creation of ours, where must we apply these measures, when could the impact be felt, and who should be responsible? 

The talk will be held in English and Vietnamese. The details of the talk are as followings:

* Date and time: 3:00 – 5:00 PM, on Monday, 18 March 2019.

* Address: Fulbright University Vietnam, 2F, 105 Ton Dat Tien, Tan Phu Ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Dr. Christopher Cuong Nguyen is well-known among tech start-up community in Silicon Valley. He founded Arimo, which is recognized by FastCompany as one of the most innovative firm in data science and deep machine learning.
