Lots (!) happening today but in the middle of it all really looking forward to @techUK Digital Ethics Summit! Tackling really important and timely questions of how we approach new digital tech in an ethical way. An amazing line up of speakers so follow #AIethics to keep up!
Absolutely packed here at @techUK digital ethics summits #AIEthics as we wait get get going!
About to get going here at the @techUK Digital Ethics Summit #AIethics. @techUKdepCEO will be welcoming guests soon
.@techUKdepCEO 'We are here to discuss how to deliver on the promise of a set of tech that can deliver benefits for people and societies in a way that minimises harm' @techUK #AIethics
'Bias in data is human bias' - @KateRosenshine @Microsoft - sometimes the data we have is neutral - this is such a crucial issue if we are to get #AIethics right!!! @techUK
Brilliant to have @margot_james_mp with us at @techUK #AIethics today - given the wider events of the day this shows her commitment to issues of data, digital, ethics and tech which is great to see!
'Innovation can only thrive when people know and trust that technology is working for them - need to work together to rebuild trust in data management' says @margot_james_mp - absolutely right, couldn't agree more and @techUK stands ready to assist in exactly that! #AIethics
'Must begin with ethics if we are to unlock the huge benefits that data and technology offers. Government has taken steps but more to be done by govt, industry and others to explore issues in more detail' says @margot_james_mp at @techUK #AIethics
.@techUKdepCEO now sitting down for a Q&A with @margot_james_mp where she says Digital Inclusion is very important to her and must be part of the ethics debate - need to bring everyone with us on this journey #AIethics @techUK
The discussion/debate around Digital Ethics isn't only taking place in the UK and we'll be looking at international scene today so it was great that @BonefeldCecilia DG of @DIGITALEUROPE and @margot_james_mp were able to meet at the @techUK summit today! #AIethics
What does Ethics mean in practice for businesses? Crucial issues including impact on workforce and society of new tech and how to retain institutional knowledge after implementing algorithms, being discussed on panel chaired by @RobMcCargow at @techUK #AIEthics
Interesting discussion taking place at @techUK Digital Ethics Summit about businesses making decisions based on ethical reasoning to walk away from deals which impact their commercial bottom line. Is this what it takes to change behaviours and does this happen enough? #AIEthics
'Ethics is a long term competitive advantage' says @Floridi as he begins his much anticipated keynote at today's @techUK Digital Ethics Summit #AIethics
'AI should be changing itself to fit the world, not the other way round' says @Floridi - really interesting thought on how AI should be used for good to benefit people and society @techUK #AIethics
Challenge of human autonomy is and will be a critical issue for #AIethics with constant recommendations and gentle nudges on choices will be significant. @techUK @Floridi
.@Floridi is setting out the five key ethical principles for AI which should guide any future regulations in this area. You can read his paper here: #AIethics @techUK
'Which ever country reaches the point where they adopt the right framework for ethics and AI, based on strong principles, has huge potential' @Floridi @techUK #AIethics
.@techUKdepCEO kicking off a breakout session on ethics in an international context - these issues are and can't be dealt with in isolation. There are initiatives in many different jurisdictions so international collaboration will be key #AIethics
So many great breakout sessions happening right now at the @techUK Digital Ethics Summit including on how to improve data rights and controls for individuals which is KEY to building the trust we've been discussion today #AIethics
Important that collective value for citizens from data use is realised - @darrenpjones MP addressing the key issue of whether individuals really see value in the way data is used - also highlighting importance of global solutions to these questions. @techUK #AIethics
'People love technology but as soon as you mention data that reaction changes' says Caroline Normand @WhichUK. This is KEY and exactly why we ALL need to work harder to build greater trust in data use - real risk we will deny people benefits of tech if we don't #AIethics @techUK
'Need a levelled approach on where humans are and are not needed in the loop depending on the type of risks involved' Human involvement doesn't necessarily remove all biases.. says @BonefeldCecilia @DIGITALEUROPE #AIethics @techUK
Interesting point from @techUKdepCEO on the bias discussion that actually the more we discuss #AIethics and the need to avoid bias the more we have learnt about biases which already exist
Absolutely stellar line up on the final panel of the @techUK Digital Ethics Summit #AIethics - what are the key issues from the day and what lies ahead - big question!! #AIethics
Interesting comment from @tabithagold on a potential disconnect between 'business' and 'people' view on data privacy/ethical issues. People as biz owners understand importance but do they as members of the general public? Food for thought! @techUK #AIethics
We need better answers for the key question of why we are developing AI systems in the first place given the concerns that exist about the development of these technologies - @tabithagold @rachelcoldicutt @techUK #AIethics
Key issue rightly pointed out by Simon McDougall @ICOnews that sectors which historically haven't had to worry about personal data issues, are now data intensive which causes challenges when discussing and aiming to deal with issues of data, ethics and usage #AIethics @techUK
Can you separate ethical use of data from the size/power of a small number of companies? Big issue and likely to determine how Digital Ethics develops but touches on so many other areas inc competition law #AIethics @techUK
.@techUKdepCEO closing @techUK Digital Ethics Summit by saying material progress does seem to have been made since last years Summit, but also clear we are not there yet and UK is a good place to have a rich conversation about these issues #AIethics
That brings @techUK Digital Ethics Summit to a close! My main takeaways have been the need to involve more people in these conversations, to make the issues around #AIethics more relatable and to continue this important dialogue. All of this crucial to build trust which is key!
