Artificial Intelligence is rare. Artificial stupidity is more common. In the movies, robots can be terrifying. In reality, thinking machines are disrupting the world in ways that are even more disturbing than in Hollywood fantasies – but they also have the potential to change our lives for the better. In this talk, internationally reknown roboticist Dr Ayanna Howard will explore how biases are infecting the next generation of Artificial Intelligence, with profoundly negative effects for humans of all genders and races. Drawing on cutting-edge research, and her own experience as one of the few Black women in the field of robotics, Dr Howard will also explore empowerment along with tools and techniques we can use as developers and users to mitigate our overtrust in these AI technologies
