Session + Live Q&A

Operationalizing Responsible AI in Practice

Enabling responsible development of artificial intelligent technologies is one of the major challenges we face as the field moves from research to practice. Researchers and practitioners from different disciplines have highlighted the ethical and legal challenges posed by the use of machine learning in many current and future real-world applications.  Now there are calls from across the industry (academia, government, and industry leaders) for technology creators to ensure that AI is used only in ways that benefit people and “to engineer responsibility into the very fabric of the technology.”   Overcoming these challenges and enabling responsible development is essential to ensure a future where AI and machine learning can be widely used. In this talk, we are discussing the latest practical approaches to responsible AI and demonstrate how our latest open source and cloud integrated responsible ML capabilities empower data scientists and developers to understand and improve ML models better.
