Digital ethics, trusted AI and IBM

Last week I gave a talk followed by a discussion at a university. The presentation was about the current state of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AI research topics. A good chunk of the discussion was dedicated to fairness, trust and digital ethics. In the following, I am sharing some of the related links.

IBM Research has a site dedicated to  AI. On that, a section provides insight into topics on what they call Trusted AI. On the main IBM site is also a portal Trusted AI for Business, providing an introduction and overview for the non-research crowd. If you are interested and want to try out and learn about few problems hands-on, I recommend these links:

IBM experts are part of many public panels, workgroups and commissions. In Germany, there is the Enquete-Kommission "K√ľnstliche Intelligenz - Gesellschaftliche Verantwortung und wirtschafliche, soziale und √∂kologische Potenziale". On the European level, it is the EU High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence.

Finally, as a showcase of current AI capabilities, I recommend this video of IBM Project Debater and the live debate at Think 2019. A short video explains how Project Debater works:
