Title: Trust is the Foundation Upon Which We Must Build our AI Future to Benefit Society
Kay Firth Butterfield, Director of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, WEF
Unless society comes with us on the journey of evolving Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine-learning technology, AI will not fulfill its purpose to benefit humanity. According to Kay Firth Butterfield, the director of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at the World Economic Forum, building trust with society must be a foundation for the development and utilization of AI technology in our lives.
In my interview with Kay, we discuss how to engage society in designing our AI future. We talk about best practices for governments to incorporate AI education in to our primary schools through high school, to future-proof our children for living and thriving in an AI future. We discuss what new skills and traits may be important for humans to develop- compassion and empathy seeming to be central to our healthy future evolution. Of course, heavy on most people’s mind is what and where will the jobs be in a new AI-enabled workplace. We’ll share some of our insights, and leave the rest up to your imagination.
Join us in listening to Kay’s thoughts on unlocking the incredible potential of humanity with AI and what it will take to shape our future toward that goal.
