About this event

Building trust around a disruptive technology such as AI is deemed crucial in order to realise its full potential while minimising the risks to people and communities. Trustworthiness has become a key concept in AI development and governance, as testified by recent EU, IEEE and ISO initiatives. However, Trustworthy AI conceptual boundaries and practical implications still raise questions prompting further investigation.

Combining different perspectives and backgrounds, speakers will discuss the rationale behind the concept, the state-of-the-art of its operationalisation, as well as the challenges to be faced and possible ways forward.

The seminar aims to move forward the conversation on the following issues:

● How to build AI applications people can trust?

● What does trustworthiness mean for different actors and disciplines?

● How to operationalise ethical standards?

● How to integrate technical solutions, organisational governance and regulatory frameworks?

Speakers: Dr Nicola Paladino, Human+ Programme Fellow; Prof Blanaid Clarke, Professor Blanaid Clark, McCann FitzGerald Chair in Corporate Law, Trinity College Dublin; Dr David Lewis, Associate Professor, Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin; Dr Kenneth McKenzie, Research Portfolio Lead, Human Sciences Studio, Accenture.
