Machines Behaving Badly with Professor Toby Walsh

When:  May 17, 2022 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM ((UTC+10:00) Canberra)
For our May meetup, we welcome Professor Toby Walsh presenting to us from his latest book Machines Behaving Badly: the morality of AI.

This event is open to members and non-members of the Digital Profession.

There’s a lot of discussion in many different fora about AI and Ethics. In this talk, Toby Walsh will attempt to identify what new issues AI brings to the table, as well as where AI requires us to address otherwise old issues. He will cover topics such as fairness, facial recognition and transparency.

Toby Walsh is an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow and Scientia Professor of AI at UNSW and CSIRO Data61, and adjunct professor at Queensland University of Technology. He is a strong advocate for limits to ensure AI is used to improve our lives, having spoken at the UN, and to heads of state, parliamentary bodies, company boards and many other bodies on this topic. He is a Fellow of the Australia Academy of Science, and was named on the international "Who's Who in AI" list of influencers. He has authored three books on AI for a general audience, the most recent entitled "Machines Behaving Badly: the morality of AI".
