While artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to provide solutions to many global challenges, it also raises ethical concerns, including questions about how to deal with the perpetuation of biases, AI capacity development, privacy, data disclosure and access. This has proven true in the management of the COVID-19 pandemic where the AI to identify possibly infected people, for contact tracing, and target delivery of healthcare has demonstrated both its potential and its drawbacks.
The Artificial Intelligence Forum: Opportunities to Accelerate Human Progress for Sustainable Development in Caribbean SIDS will address various dimensions of the potentials of AI in relation to education, creative industries and entrepreneurship, and will also shed light on the ethical principles of AI and AI governance in order to develop regional and national AI strategies.
The two-day agenda will consist of presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions covering the following topics:
Day 1 – Thursday February 18 @ 9:00am – 1:00pm (EST)
• Principles for AI Governance
