A fireside chat with Dona Sarkar and Stela Solar on responsible AI.

With the current boom of artificial intelligence innovation, there’s never been a more important time to understand its impacts. AI technology drives much of our everyday life, from our interaction with digital assistants, to the way we commute, to transforming the way we work. 

What happens if we don’t get it right, how can we uplift the practice of responsible AI, and what are the practical ways we can ensure we build AI tools responsibly?

Dona Sarkar and Stela Solar are leaders in the field of AI and will share their unique insights, what keeps them up at night, and their hopes for the future of AI.
