What exactly is ‘responsible AI’ in principle and in practice?

On May 10, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a webinar to unpack what is meant by “responsible AI” and how different sectors are building corollary frameworks to increase the technology’s accountability. Panelists will also discuss the roles of self-regulation, public policies, and consumer feedback.

AI Here and There: Transatlantic Dialogues on Artificial Intelligence, Society and Innovation In the past decade Artificial Intelligence (AI) has quietly and quickly become prominent in our daily lives, whether we have realized it or not. AI has made itself indispensable: in our private lives, in the workplace, in sports, and even art. However there are only a select few that know what AI really is about and what this means for us as a society. This four part event series aims at introducing the subject of AI to a broad audience. Each event will be focused on different subjects. Since this is a global topic, we took this opportunity in stride to invite panelists both locally and internationally from Switzerland and the US. The series is organized by the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York and the Center for Responsible AI | NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and hosted by Mona Sloane.

Co-Opting AI: Ideology

NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, the NYU Center for Responsible AI, and the 370 Jay Project invite you to a discussion on games in the series “Co-Opting AI.” Quests for innovation, particularly technological innovation, seem to always be closely tied to different systems of ideas and ideals. Artificial intelligence in particular is bound up in narratives and theories of progress, prosperity, and the superiority of the human race. Many of these ideologies influence public policy and even geopolitical relations. The “Co-Opting AI: Ideology” event sets out to examine how these ideals fuel the rise of AI, how they are bound up in histories of rule making, counting, and bureaucracy, how they are built on Western ontologies and perpetuate Western power structures.

AI for Good: Designing an Equitable Future

Artificial intelligence (AI) can solve the world’s biggest challenges, but without thoughtful design, automated decision-making systems can pose risks and perpetuate injustices. When organizations adopt new technologies without regard to the wider social, economic, cultural, and political contexts, they can endanger privacy and security and exacerbate existing inequities in ways that are difficult to reverse.

Co-Opting AI: Intimacy

NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, the NYU Center for Responsible AI, and the 370 Jay Project invite you to a discussion on games in the series “Co-Opting AI.” This event will focus on how our intimate lives are mediated by technology, and artificial intelligence specifically, and vice versa. Featuring Gabriella Garcia, Hannah Zeavin, and Mona Sloane, the discussion will explore the themes of agency, care, connectedness, sexuality, (non-)humanness, and inequity.

What solutions to data bias in machine learning algorithms?

While artificial intelligence is more and more used, many AI incidents report data processing biases or discrimination. Good In Tech organizes a research webinar to discuss the biases of artificial intelligence. What solutions to data bias in machine learning algorithms? With Stephan Clemençon (Telecom Paris), Serge Abitboul (ENS Paris) and Julia Stoyanovich (NYU).

Understanding and Addressing Algorithmic Bias in Hiring

This online session is designed to generate insight into algorithmic bias in employment assessment software tools (aka hiring). Using a rotating presenter/panel format and building on timely field-based debates, the goal is to establish a common point of entry into the issue by tackling the socio-historical foundation of bias in technology that is present in today’s systems, especially algorithmic auditing initiatives (Mona Sloane); engaging in a deep dive into how these tools actually work, including the role of data in decisions, through the accessible metaphor of baking sourdough bread (Julia Stoyanovich); and sharing concrete evidence of current impacts through recent research, first-hand experience of such tools and critical perspectives on algorithmic auditing (Hilke Schellmann).

Co-Opting AI: Games

This event will explore the deep historical and cultural links between games and technology, and specifically artificial intelligence. Featuring Kishonna L. Gray, Bo Ruberg, Julian Togelius, and Mona Sloane, the discussions will examine how games serve as a frontier of AI research, but also what – and whose – narratives shape “technological innovation” and “progress”, how this is connected to gaming cultures (or not), and how it is linked to wider structures of power and oppression.

Co-Opting AI: Security

NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, the NYU Center for Responsible AI, and the 370 Jay Project invite you to a discussion on finance in the series “Co-Opting AI.” Narratives, policies, and innovations in AI are often tied up with notions of “security”. While our increasingly AI-mediated social world is vulnerable to different forms of cyber threats, “security” also serves as justification for large-scale surveillance of already over-policed and oppressed communities. The event will feature Laura Norén, Ram Shankar Siva Kumar, Newton Campbell, and Mona Sloane and will examine links between the topics of algorithmic harm, national security, and cybersecurity, and to ask what – or who – counts as “risk” or as “threat” in the context of AI.

MLK Week Kick-Off: Courageous Conversations in AI

It is widely known that data science technology, if used irresponsibly, can reinforce inequity, limit accountability, and infringe on the privacy of individuals. Open and effective conversations around these issues of social (in)justice in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and beyond are pivotal in coalition-building and community engagement. And yet, in moments of opposing opinions, high stakes, and strong emotions, people often find themselves immobile and polarized. How, then, do we choose between chaos or community? How do we move forward? In this webinar, co-director of the NYU Center for Responsible AI, Dr. Julia Stoyanovich, and Stern adjunct assistant professor, Jennifer Wynn, will discuss these central questions and their implications. Virtual attendees will acquire the knowledge, tools, and courage required to help them engage in challenging conversations, remain vigilant within their communities, and enact social change in our increasingly digital and tech-oriented spaces.

Algorithmic Bias, Tech Policy, & Equity at NYC Media Summit

It is no secret that automated decision systems (ADS) are seeing ever broader use. In critical domains like hiring, these tools can help improve efficiency for both job seekers and employers, but they can also lead to arbitrary, unfair, or even discriminatory outcomes. How can we tell whether an ADS actually works? Who is responsible for catching bias and discrimination bugs? Should we regulate the use of these systems? What can we as technologists, business leaders, and members of the public contribute to the responsible design, development, and use of ADS? Join us to learn more and to make your voices heard!
