Programming People: How to implement 'AI for good'

Artificial Intelligence is a little bit like sex: Everyone talks about it, very few people actually do it and if you don't do it safely, the consequences can be devastating. This session will give you a basic understanding of what you (yes, you!) can do to implement "ethical" AI systems in your organization and enjoy the promising opportunities this new tool offers while being aware of its limitations and risks.

Picos and Decentralized SSI Agencies

Picos (persistent compute objects) are an actor-model programming system with long-term persistent state. Each pico also has persistent identity and availability for a cloud-native developer experience. Picos are DIDComm-enabled agents supporting SSI. Consequently, picos are capable of running specialized application protocols for any given workflow in a secure, cryptographic environment. The architecture of picos makes them independent of the runtime they executed on, holding out hope of a decentralized SSI agency. This talk introduces picos, demonstrates their DIDComm capabilities, and presents a roadmap for building a decentralized SSI agency, independent of any particular organization.
