Ethical AI:
It's Time


As Artificial Intelligence (AI) and autonomous decision-making systems take hold and rapidly develop, how can we ensure this powerful technology upholds our most important values? We deserve fairness, inclusion, accountability, transparency, individual privacy, economic security, public safety and sustainability.  

Ethical AI: It's time  — brought to you by Thomson Reuters; Communitech, the champions of Tech for Good®; and CityAge — brings together some of the top minds in AI, business and society to drive conversation around how we can ensure this transformative and rapidly evolving technology benefits everyone. 

We have a duty in front of us to leverage these technologies to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges, but we must do so safely. 

Join us on June 17 for this diverse conversation on specific use cases of how business and major institutions can develop and adopt AI with essential ethical frameworks in mind. We will also explore what roles various stakeholders should take in this journey. 

We need to build a future where we can be sure AI is ethical, trustworthy, and safe for everyone. We all have a role to play.
