TRuST Scholarly Network’s Conversations on Artificial Intelligence: Should It Be Trusted? | Live Event at Perimeter

Artificial Intelligence and big data are dramatically transforming the way we work, live and connect. Innovators have begun designing AI solutions to advance society at a rapid pace, but often new technologies bring both promise and risk. How can we trust AI and safeguard society from unintended consequences to ensure a safe and human-centred digital future?

Join the University of Waterloo in partnership with the Perimeter Institute for the TRuST Scholarly Network’s Conversations on lecture series where technology leaders from UWaterloo, Google and NASA will discuss how AI is transforming society and if we should trust these technologies.

Moderator:

Jenn Smith, Engineering Director and WAT Site co-lead, Google Canada

Panelists:

  • Lai-Tze Fan, Professor of Sociology and Legal Studies and Canada Research Chair in Technology and Social Change
  • Makhan Virdi, NASA researcher
  • Anindya Sen, Professor of Economics and associate director of the Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute
  • Leah Morris, Senior Director, Velocity Program, Radical Venture
