As part of micro courses that will be taking place throughout the semester, Carnegie Mellon faculty will be giving lectures open to the community. David Danks, L.L. Thurston Professor of Philosophy and Psychology, Head, Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University will be speaking on, “Achieving trusted AI”
AI development is filled with buzzwords for the AI that we should want: explainable, transparent, responsible, trusted, and many more. However, calls for better, more ethical AI are rarely accompanied by practical, implementable guidance about how to achieve these goals. This talk will first explore how to translate the vague term ‘trusted’ into measurable, operational indicators and features. I will then provide some real-world practices, developed in collaboration with a range of companies and non-profits, that can increase the likelihood of achieving these goals for our AI systems. Trusted AI is achievable, and ethically critical.
