Making AI Trustworthy

Time / Place:

⏱️ 10/7 (Thur.) 19:20-19:45 at Online Track 1


In recent years, exciting technological breakthroughs in AI research and technology have been witnessed across different domains, ranging from computer vision, natural language processing, robotics, medical diagnosis, game playing, to scientific discovery, among others. While we are expecting an AI-driven revolution to transform our industry and bring something good to our daily lives, it is also necessary to inspect its potential negative influence and possible failure modes that could incur undesirable ethical, societal, social, technological, and environmental impacts.

In this talk, I will share the journey toward making AI trustworthy as an industrial practitioner and as an AI researcher, including the following four main topics: fairness, explainability, robustness, and transparency.

For each topic, I will provide motivation, case studies, and technical tools for infusing trust into AI technology and regulation.

Finally, I will share my vision on how practicing trustworthy AI can create a new ecosystem that ensures responsible, reliable, and safe use of our AI technology and how trustworthy AI can create new business and research opportunities.
