This third session will focus on how the discussion and societal concerns around RAI have changed, perhaps exacerbated by the world dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. How can the international conversation directed by AI practitioners and stakeholders build more Responsible AI systems? Many questions follow AI’s development, such as how to protect citizens’ privacy and national information security? What measures can help AI implement good human behaviors and avoid unethical uses? Addressing RAI at scale may require seeing the interconnected, complex, often multi disciplinary, interrelated subject that it is. RAI encompasses various cultural contexts and factors. How can we empower future practitioners with this new broad, foundational training? We hope attendees will learn about strategies from a few of our international thought leaders. The AI revolution may already be upon us, but at Orange we are focused on “giving everyone the keys to a more responsible digital world”.
- Dr. Genevieve Bell represent another geographical perspective on Responsible AI (from Australia), a highly distinguished social anthropologist returning home from long stints all over the world and especially Silicon Valley. She leads innovative approaches on creating the future of responsibly aware AI practitioners via running multidisciplinary AI education at ANU for what she calls “the 4th Industrial Revolution: Responsible and Secure AI ”.
- Dr. Yi Zeng will discuss about how AI models, applications and algorithms should comply with the moral and ethical norms of human society. Stressing international coordination on AI principles, with diverse and different perspectives to supplement consensus building (such as UNESCO guidelines), he asserts can help avoid many specific and unintended ethical risks.
- Francois Jezequel will speak about the challenges of RAI from the corporate global perspective. He believes that responsible AI has to be frugal, working with a minimum of data and with optimized hardware architecture to be effective on an international scale.
Dr. Genevieve Bell is an Australian anthropologist best known for her work at the intersection of cultural practice and technology development. Bell established the 3A Institute (at the Australian National University College of Engineering and Computer Science) to focus on exploring how to bring together data science, design thinking, and ethnography to drive new approaches in engineering. Further, she seeks to question what it means to be human in a data-driven economy and world.
Dr. Yi Zeng is a Professor and Deputy Director at the Research Center for Brain-inspired Artificial Intelligence at the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He is a board member for the National Governance Committee of Next-Generation Artificial Intelligence affiliated with the Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST). Zeng is also in AI ethics expert groups at the World Health Organization and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). He jointly led the drafting of Beijing AI Principles (2019) and the National Governance Principles of New Generation AI of China (GPNGAI, 2019).
François Jézéquel is the Director of Business Development within Orange Fab France, the Corporate start-up accelerator since September 2019. He is currently steering the 5G start-up acceleration program aiming at developing commercial partnerships for innovation in telecommunication services and infrastructures. Over his career, François has led the development of bilateral relationships with other Telecom Operators on key transformation topics – like 5G, SDN/NFV, and AI – to build technology partnerships. François is also General Member representative at the Board of Linux Foundation Artificial Intelligence since 2018 and holds an MSc in Software engineering from Telecom Paris Sud.
Please join the conversation with Orange Silicon Valley on Tuesday, December 15 at 2:00 PM PST.
