Techweek TV: Creating responsible AI for citizens

What's it all about?

AI is playing a growing role in our communities, from health and education, right through to community consultation. But what principles should AI adhere to when it is used to support citizens? And what should citizens expect in return for their information? Hear from our panellists as they discuss these issues as well as trust, ethics and privacy when creating AI for citizens.

This Techweek TV session is aimed at government and community leaders to give them things to consider before embarking on their AI journey.
