The world is experiencing extraordinary advances in artificial intelligence, with applications being deployed in finance, health care, education, e-commerce, criminal justice, and national defense, among other areas. As AI technology advances across industries and into everyday use around the world, important questions must be addressed regarding transparency, fairness, privacy, ethics, and human safety. What are AI’s benefits and risks? What role should the public and private sectors play in addressing AI challenges? Can AI be part of the solution?
On October 31, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings hosted a public event on new developments in artificial intelligence. Panelists discussed the opportunities, risks, and ways to mitigate possible problems with these emerging technologies.
After the session, panelists answered questions from the audience.
