Safe and Trustworthy Al-Based Data Algorithms – Emerging Best Practices in the Global South and the Global North
20 October, 2020 at 7:00 AM - 8:30 AM EDT
Data algorithms are critical tools that have brought benefits to the public and private sector and the broader Data Community. However, public trust in artificial intelligence-based Data Algorithms has faltered due to a lack of transparency in how Data Algorithms function and public involvement in decision making around how such Algorithms are used.
In line with recommendation 3C of the report of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, the session will discuss challenges and solutions relating to the safe and trustworthy use of AI systems, including in the support of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Decade of Action, differences between the Global South and Global North in this area and aiming to propose solutions.
