  • AI Interrogator: Trustworthy AI and Ethics with IBM Consulting's Phaedra Boinodiris

    April 8, 2024


  • There is a need for a comprehensive approach to AI development, recognizing it as a sociotechnical challenge that requires collaboration across diverse disciplines. By incorporating perspectives from anthropology, sociology, psychology, law, and other fields, AI projects can better address ethical considerations, societal implications, and biases throughout the AI lifecycle.
  • Engaging young people in discussions about AI ethics and governance is crucial. By integrating AI literacy into education curricula, particularly in civics classes, students can develop critical thinking skills and awareness of algorithmic bias from an early age. Empowering youth to ask tough questions about AI and understand its societal impacts is crucial for shaping a responsible AI future.
