OSLO.AI QUARTERLY – Putting Ethical AI into Practice

Oslo.AI is dedicated to building a leading community for knowledge sharing and networking within the AI space. For our first quarterly event of 2020 we are partnering up with Microsoft and Inmeta to bring you an event that puts the spotlight on AI Ethics.


AI has the potential to impact and shape the world – exactly why we are so excited about it. But as AI is being applied across industries and scenarios, it’s becoming more and more clear that we need to practice AI responsibly and ethically.

There is a lot of talk about the importance of responsible and ethical AI but they tend not to go deeper than values and principles. We observe a lack of information and resources about how we actually put these ethical considerations into practice.

In this event, we would like to explore and discuss the practical applications of AI ethics through the speakers and the facilitated group discussions.

Speakers at the event will discuss topics as below
– What are the common ethical challenges when applying AI
– What actors should decide whether an algorithm is fair or not
– How righteousness is an integral part of how machine learning models are evaluated
– How you can balance conflicting requirements concerning righteousness, explainability and accuracy

In addition we will have a facilitated group exercise at the end exploring practical implementation of Ethical AI in real life.
Please be ready to network, participate and engage in small group activities as part of this meet-up.
