#ConfrontingAIBias

Overview

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly transitioning from a promising technology to a commercial reality. But even as new AI-based tools unlock innovation and economic growth, they run the risk of mirroring and perpetuating existing patterns of inequality.

Policymakers, industry leaders, and AI experts agree on the need to address the potential risks of AI bias. BSA | The Software Alliance stands ready to lead this conversation and recently unveiled a first-of-its-kind framework for managing the risks of bias that may emerge throughout an AI system’s lifecycle.

Please join BSA for a transatlantic event exploring how global leaders are tackling the risk of bias in AI in both the private and public sectors.
