We were at Responsible Tech 2020

Jun 15, 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.
