MITRE Grand Challenges Power Hour: Advancing Fairness in AI Adoption

Thursday, April 8, 2021 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Virtual Event

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are starting to touch every part of our daily life. How do we ensure these technologies are adopted in a way that preserves privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties?

Join us April 8th to examine issues of fairness in AI adoption, including specific audit and oversight recommendations in the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI) Final Report. We'll examine the challenges and opportunities presented by the increasing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and how to establish confidence in the preservation of privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
