Big Data or Big Bias? – The AI dilemma games

Democracy, AI, Artificial Intelligence, Data,

Meetups are independent community gatherings organized by Techfestival co-creators. Open to curious minds of all ages and backgrounds. Make sure to RSVP to secure your spot!

Is it ok to fall in love with a robot? And is it ok to create a robot that people will believe is human – and then fall in love with it?

Would you want an AI-system to design your cancer therapy, if you cannot know how and why it determined what’s best for you?

Should we allow AI to develop in the most efficient way beyond human control?

And would you rather have cheap good or a wellpaying job?

AI, Big Data and Machine Learning are disruptive technologies promising enormous gains in health care, infrastructure, consumer services etc.

But there is no such thing as a free lunch. When decisions are guided or made by algorithms we face a number of challenges to some of our most valued principles of transparency, accountability and the right to challenge any decision affecting your life.

If we are to seize AI as an opportunity for society and business both, we need to learn to tread the path between the extremes of tech-cheerleaders and technophobes. To do this we need the common sense and weighted arguments that only YOU can provide.

Through a series of dilemmas, we will engage the audience in deciding how best to use AI, Big Data and Machine Learning in the real life settings where it must prove it´s worth.

A panel of commentators will add their reflections too:

  • Ida Auken, Chairman of SIRI-Kommissionen and Member of Danish Parliament (RV)
  • Andreas Cleve, CEO of Corti that builds AI-systems to improve emergency call services
  • Gry Hasselbalch: consultant and author, Vice Chair of IEEE standard P7006 for Personal Data Artificial Intelligence Agents and a member of IEEEs Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in the Design of Autonomous Systems committee.

Join the Dilemma Games and shape the future of AI on September 6th at 5 pm.
