Distinguished Visitor: Dr. Malek BEN SALEM - AI Opportunities and Risks


Distinguished Visitor:  Dr. Malek BEN SALEM - AI Opportunities and Risks

Developments in machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence are introducing a new age of “Smart cities” and “intelligent enterprises”. From self-driving cars to home automation, AI has the potential to be the most disruptive class of technologies during the next decade.

In this talk, I will introduce the audience to the technologies behind Artificial Intelligence and the suite of capabilities that it allows. I will discuss various applications enabled by these capabilities. In the second half of the talk, I will cover the risks associated with AI. In order to deploy AI broadly and limit any negative implications, we need to build trust betweens human and AI, by developing AI that is trustworthy, i.e. AI that is ethical, resilient, and explainable.
