Building AI Responsibly: Understanding and Mitigating the Risks of AI Systems

Tags: Artificial Intelligence


Presented by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program at Colorado Law and Silicon Flatirons.

Featuring Rumman Chowdhury

The talk will address the risk and harms introduced by AI systems in everyday life, and how this affects potential litigation, upcoming policy, and the future of the legal profession. Specifically this talk will reference the use of AI models in advising judges to allow bail, and other real-world applications.

AI Ethics Series

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is increasingly in use by both the government and the private sector, from the allocation of government benefits to the creation of smart contracts. However, poorly designed AI systems can lead to significant harms, including but not limited to discrimination. The question of how to regulate and build ethical AI is central. This lecture series will emphasize the practical applications of AI technology and ways to ensure principle-based ethics are a key focus of both development and regulation.
