Machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms promise many benefits such as overcoming human limitations and biases in decision-making and productivity. However, deployment of machine learning algorithms has shown that these algorithms may amplify existing biases in society, create new biases, increase privacy and cybersecurity risks, and pose novel ethical dilemmas.

The conference will explore how society and organizations can maximize the benefits and minimize the risks of these algorithms.
