Let's watch The Power and Peril of Artificial Intelligence

GDG Los Angeles

Artificial Intelligence is a vital part of conveniences we take for granted, from shopping recommendations to voice assistants. As helpful as this technology is, it has the capacity to perpetuate harm when misapplied. In this Meetup Live event, we’ll be hosting a discussion on the ethics of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

About this event

Anne Griffin, an expert in AI, blockchain, and inclusivity will be discussing real-life examples of what goes wrong when we build technology without considering the potential for harmful outcomes. You will learn about algorithms, which are integrated into the systems we interact with daily. Anne will talk about communities that have been affected by AI applications, as well as what some organizations are doing to increase transparency in the field. Plus, stick around for Q&A!
