Is it possible to create ethical AI that truly incorporates ethnic diversity?
And is it possible to avoid creating AI that doesn’t embed bias and perpetuate stereotypes?
And…do we want to?
From having worked on the ethics behind lethal autonomous weapons in the past, Emmanuel is here to discuss the ethics behind AI.
Meet Emmanuel R. Goffi
