Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

  •  TYPE: Track    START DATE: Wednesday, May 15, 2019     START TIME: 14:30  
Parent Track


This track builds upon the sessions during the morning to cover further areas of application for AI and ML as well as the ethic and regulatory issues that need to be considered.

Cognitive technologies make it possible to improve user interactions and this track will explore some of the ways in which this can be achieved using chatbots.  As well as providing benefits, new technologies sometimes bring new challenges.  Famously, in 2014 Prof. Stephen Hawking told the BBC: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race."  This track will explore the ethical issues that surround their use and discuss the potential needs for regulations.

The Identity Problem of Chatbots

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Time: 14:30-15:30

The Identity Problem of Chatbots
Ronald Ashri, GreenShoot Labs

Chatbots are alternatively being hyped as a great opportunity and a great disappointment. There is a plethora of options on how to build and design chatbots and a lot of platforms where they can run. To make things even more complicated there is a lot of confusion around the lines between chatbots and artificial intelligence and how the two intersect. This talk aims to clarify the range of concepts and give you a conceptual framework that will make it much simpler to guide strategic...

Intelligent Chatbots - Different Approaches and their Use Cases
Dr. Karol Przystalski, Codete

We go through different approaches to chatbots development. The presentation consists of a few Jupyter notebooks with code samples. We show and compare a few examples of neural networks architectures that can be used for chatbots. Based on our experience and presented architectures we give some advice on which architecture should be used where. Key Takeaways know the chatbots taxonomy and difference between each what is important to build an intelligent chatbot what kind of...

Panel: Chatbot Identity - Challenges and Possible Solutions
Katryna Dow, Meeco • Christian Goy, Behavioral Science Lab • Mark Stephen Meadows, Botanic Technologies, Inc. • Dr. Karol Przystalski, Codete

Chatbots are replacing humans in many domains from online sales assistants to online learning.  However, they can often be very stilted and mechanical in their interactions – how can we give a chatbot a more human persona?  As with all systems, using a chatbot involves a level of mutual trust and this depends upon identity.  How can the human be sure that the identity of the chatbot and how can the chatbot be sure of the identity of the human?  This panel will...

Panel: Regulatory Recommendations for AI

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Time: 15:30-16:30

Panel: Regulatory Recommendations for AI
Joerg Resch, KuppingerCole • Kim Cameron, • Dr. Barbara Mandl, FOSTER FORE • Dr. Karsten Kinast, KuppingerCole • Ivana Bartoletti, Gemserv

in a recent Forbes Article ( Link ), Ivana Bartoletti described "10 regulatory recommendations for AI" the Women Leading in AI organization led by her has defined. In this session, Ivana will introduce you into the concept of this proposed regulation and how it can help us to keep AI benefits high and risks low. After Ivana´s introduction, she will discuss together with Dr. karsten Kinast and more panelists the practicability of these recommendations and how the could be globally...

The 6 Major Ethical Issues of AI

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Time: 17:30-18:30

The 6 Major Ethical Issues of AI
Mike Small, KuppingerCole

This will provide a short introduction to ethics and why it is relevant to AI.  It will outline the ethical problems that Artificial Intelligence raises.  Ethics considerations can help to better identify beneficial applications while avoiding harmful ones.  In addition, new technologies are often viewed with suspicion and mistrust.  This can unreasonably inhibit the development of technologies that have significant beneficial potential.  It will describe six areas...

AI's Ethical Problems and Blockchain's Solutions
Mark Stephen Meadows, Botanic Technologies, Inc.

Blockchain is, simply put, a public list. And because AI uses a list to predict things then we can see that AI and Blockchain fit nicely together. This is lucky because AI is presenting problems Blockchain helps solve. Is it fair that Facebook control the most powerful AI system on the planet -- a system built with end-user data? Blockchain helps decentralize AI and it allows users to be compensated for their data. It also allows the monetization of open source. And that's important stuff...

Panel: Integrating Ethics into AI Research, Development, and Adoption
Doc Searls, Customer Commons • Dr. Emilio Mordini, NORIA • Jochen Werne, PROSEGUR • Mark Stephen Meadows, Botanic Technologies, Inc.

Digital Transformation rewuires leaders to gain a new, informed perspective on the implications of technology and security on business decisions. AI driven tools lack transparency and may lead to unexpected consequences, which makes it complex to evaluate them and requires, more than ever, interdisciplinary expertise. In this panel, we will try to initiate a conversation that we haven´t really had so far, but is critical fort he success of our bsuiness and technology strategies.
