We’re recruiting for our Summer Scholar program 2020-2021. This is a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate students to get some hands-on experience working on problems on the frontier of artificial intelligence and with a not-for-profit organisation. Our summer scholars will work on concrete research projects translating ethical principles and ideals into the design and implementation of AI systems. To qualify, applicants need to have an excellent academic record, be passionate about exploring new questions, and want to devote their energy to making the world a better place. Applications close 15/08/2020.
Mid-June, Gradient Institute participated in the Responsible Tech Summit 2020. One of the questions this conference focused on was how to innovate responsibly and move towards a positive future where tech is useful, trusted and trustworthy.
To help address this through a specific case-study, our Chief Practitioner Lachlan McCalman presented a talk about building more ethical AI targeted marketing systems. This talk examined some practical approaches to understanding and controlling the ethical impact of AI targeted marketing systems and how vital it is to ensure these systems do not perpetuate or reinforce systemic disadvantage or cause unintended harm.

Lachlan also gave a preview of the “Building Ethical AI Systems” workshop Gradient Institute will present at AgileAus20 in October this year, which will explore key considerations for individuals and organisations that want to embed ethics into their AI.
