This December, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings Institute is hosting a panel to discuss how to increase diversity in artificial intelligence and build a more equitable future. On Dec. 4, some of the tech industry’s leading Black female AI experts are convening to share their insights and discuss how inclusivity can be incorporated into AI design.
The panel, which will be moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow and CTI Director Nicol Turner Lee, will also cover why vulnerable communities need to remain at the forefront of the conversation as the technology continues to advance. With the power of AI growing rapidly, new guidelines and regulations have been put in place to protect consumer interests. President Joe Biden recently issued an executive order implementing new standards of security to ensure Americans’ right to privacy and protection.
Black people are especially vulnerable to AI risks, which is why Majority Senate Leader Chuck Schumer recently addressed the issue in a Black Media Artificial Intelligence Pen and Pad session. He expressed plans to expand protections for Black Americans as artificial intelligence progresses, and highlighted how deep fakes and political ads have particularly targeted Black voters.
Despite the risks, artificial intelligence presents an unbeatable opportunity for entrepreneurship and evolution. This panel will outline how diversity and equitable deployment of AI are vital to making that happen. To submit questions, viewers can contact [email protected]
