Advancements in artificial intelligence (A.I.) are bringing new capabilities and efficiencies to public- and private-sector organizations, making it possible to:
detect trading anomalies in public markets
put self-driven cars on the road
identify criminal suspects with facial recognition technology
find and patch system vulnerabilities without human intervention
Yet disruptive technologies have inherent risks, and A.I. is no exception:
using algorithms to “de-anonymize” data and violate privacy
undermining of civil liberties
inadequate regulation of powerful technologies
In this session, learn how the emergence of A.I. is changing the way federal agencies pursue their missions, the impact on regulation and other associated risks.
