Explainability and Guidelines for Responsible AI

The potential for explainable AI (XAI) techniques to improve trustworthy and responsible AI has become common conversation, providing a useful and meaningful technical compliment to ethical guidelines. But, where, when and how can XAI be an effective tool for AI governance? In this session, we explore what is meant by explainability in AI and how we can make it a useful guideline for developers and policymakers.

Business Ethics and Managing Risk with AI
AI-enabled technologies have the potential to solve old problems, improve on old issues, but also introduce some new problems. Ethical risks can translate into economic risks for companies and AI developers. In this session, we ask: how do we incorporate principles from business ethics into the process of AI development and organizational structures in order to mitigate potential risks, while promoting conceivable gains? And, what challenges might organizations face in this endeavor?

AI Policy and Regulation
AI has enormous potential to both positively and negatively affect society. As the speed of technological development increases, how can we think about governing AI to exploit the positive implications and reduce the negative ones? In this session, we will explore the policy options and related challenges in regulating the development and use of AI with stakeholders from academia, industry and international organizations.
