Episode 19: How does an online hub for ethical AI work?
Updated: Mar 5, 2021
The Ask AI interview with Dr. Foteini Agrafioti, Chief Science Officer, RBC
Special thanks to Microsoft Canada and Cinchy for sponsoring the third series of the Ask AI podcast and supporting greater awareness of artificial intelligence in Canada. All of our episodes and 100s of AI profiles are also available from our chatbot, generously sponsored by Toronto’s Ada Support.
A recent study of 600 leading Canadian businesses conducted by Borealis AI revealed that 93% of them encountered significant barriers to implementing ethical considerations within artificial intelligence. This is of particular concern when you consider that many corporate and public sector organizations have already begun to shift decision-making powers to machine learning algorithms.
In this episode of the Ask AI podcast, host Jaxson Khan speaks with Dr. Foteini Agrafioti, Head of Borealis AI and RBC's Chief Science Officer who has created an openly available online hub that provides AI developers and researchers with scientific research, research code, and training materials to support the inclusion of ethical dimensions within their projects.
