During previous events, the Artificial Intelligence Is Here series examined AI from various angles, helping public servants understand the implications of this new technology for them and their work.
This final event in the series will revisit some of the crucial lessons about AI as it relates to citizen consent, bias, economic impacts and regulatory frameworks, and offer expert predictions about what impact AI is likely to have on the future of government.
Participants will emerge from this event with a better understanding of the following ideas about AI:
- the distributed impact of AI on jobs, and why this is good news for workers
- why values and principles in public decision-making will be even more important as AI use increases
- some of the key reasons why democracies stand to reap greater benefits from AI and algorithmic governance than autocracies
