When AI makes decisions….

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is widely adopted in business and daily life today. Its ubiquity is under- appreciated and often misunderstood, and as a result, expectations of its role in our society differ widely.

While AI may come across as a complete and ideal solution, there are many shortcomings with this ever-evolving decision-making technology. One of these are biases, be it gender, cultural or otherwise.

… can humans still intervene?

AI can amplify inherent biases and prejudices present in society and negatively impact both individuals and businesses. Given that humans are positioned at the front, center and receiving ends of AI work, how can we identify, mitigate and even avoid biases?


This event is designed for all mid-level leaders to senior executives across the industries who want to bring about a greater explanation to their peers about technology, and in turn, create positive change for their organizations, societies and themselves.
