WAITALK: Shaping ai for good


If AI is to reach its potential in serving humans and helping to solve big societal problems, there are key considerations to be addressed. Shaping trusted, safe and inclusive AI technologies as well as equitable access to their benefits notably require strong ethical principles, training for new skills, etc. This must all come together to make the most of this new technology. Come along and meet Big AI Tech and little AI Tech companies partnering for this inaugural event of Women in AI in Sydney and help us apply focus to local leadership for good AI outcomes. Hear from expert AI speakers, learn more about the Women in AI mission and how you could be part of it. It is just the beginning and part of a greater plan of events for 2019!
