Ouse Valley Branch: 'Ethical Use of Artificial Intelligence' by Professor Jim Norton

Loading Events

Professor Jim Norton OBE FREng, Immediate Past Chair of the Royal Academy of Engineering Community of Practice in Digital Systems, will discuss and debate how Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are technologies now being applied ubiquitously in areas as diverse as medical diagnosis and policing. They are immensely valuable tools and yet potentially also dangerously fallible. How can the benefits best be extracted, whilst minimising the risks? How should ethical principles be applied in the development and use of such systems? How are the best synergies achieved between human and machine intelligence?

Booking forms are available on request from Interim Chair, Ellen Punter, and must be returned at least seven days prior to the event:

Tickets for lunch are priced at £25 for members and £28 for non-members. Talk only tickets are £10.

These meetings are open to local branch members and their guests, as well as other members of the ESU. Ouse Valley branch welcomes new members and embraces those who have supported the ESU, as well as the local branch, for many years.
