Panel on Ethics and Artificial Intelligence, SG Innovate event Singapore & The Netherlands

AI and Ethics: The Key to a Successful Human-AI Relation

Presented by SGInnovate, Netherlands Innovation Network, Netherlands AI Coalition and NTU Institute for Science and Technology for Humanity
In support of Deep Tech for Good

Citizens, the government and industry are on a daily basis assisted by artificial intelligence. With the accelerated adoption and continuous development, we need to be aware of the risks and protect but not block development. But what does it entail and how do we ensure ethics and responsibility are incorporated in algorithms? How can companies make that assessment in the development but also deployment of AI tools?
In the session AI and Ethics: The Key to a Successful Human-AI Relation, thought leaders and industry experts from Singapore and the Netherlands will share their vision in this domain. While small in size, Singapore and the Netherlands have created a lot of positive impact in the global AI domain. We will touch upon the role of ethics in AI development and deployment, how to assess whether AI tools are hitting the mark and what the most common pitfalls are.
