Co-chair of the UK Government’s review on Artificial Intelligence, Regius Professor Dame Wendy Hall, discussed the future of AI and its ethical, economic and social implications in this keynote address.
Artificial Intelligence is set to transform society in the coming decades in ways that have long been predicted by science fiction writers but are only now becoming feasible.
While AI is still a long way from being as powerful as the human brain, many machines can now outperform human beings, particularly when it comes to analysing large amounts of data. This will lead to many jobs being replaced by automated processes and machines.
As with all major technological revolutions, such advancements bring with it unexpected opportunities and challenges for society with a need to consider the ethical, accountability and diversity impacts.
Listen to Wendy discuss the future of AI and its ethical, economic and social implications in this keynote address.
