In AI We Trust? Ethics & Bias in Machine Learning
Event on 2016-09-15 17:30:00
The big data era enabled organizations to store more data at a lower cost, and process data more quickly and efficiently. Organizations now seek ways to transform their data into meanginful insights, insights that inspire new products, drive revenue, or enable automation that impacts the bottom line. Machine learning is at the center of this next wave of innovation and growth. But to use new algorithms effectively, organizations should first understand how they work and the novel, unique risks they pose to the private sector and society at large. Join us September 15-17 to network with fellow machine learning practitioners and discuss the ethics – and practical business opportunities – of emerging data technologies.
