SEASON 1 EPISODE 3

AI Ethicist, Uthman Ali, discusses bias and ethics on the limitless AI horizon

In this final episode in our Responsible AI series, we speak with Uthman Ali. Responsible AI Advisor to the World Economic Forum, former paralegal, and philosophical AI thinker, Uthman talks to us about accountability, applicability, and the ethics surrounding AI use.

As AI continues to evolve exponentially, it’s up to business leaders, governments, and regulatory bodies to enact, police, and legislate for responsible AI use.

But while we get wrapped up in the fervour of AI’s present applications, the future is as uncertain as it is exciting. Minds like AI Ethicist, Uthman Ali, are the ones working to construct the boundaries within which AI can flourish without causing undue harm.

In this interview, Uthman unpicks the short and long-term implications of AI with a positive outlook that paints it as a universal enabler. What matters most now is that we first define the parameters with which it can be used safely.

Uthman Ali
AI Ethicist

SEASON 1 EPISODE 2

Dr Maya Dillon of Cambridge Consultants’ on balancing AI innovation with AI regulation

In the next episode of our series on Responsible AI, we’re looking at how businesses can innovate in the seemingly lawless AI space, while also establishing frameworks to keep people and reputation safe from harm. Listen as Dr Maya Dillon, Cambridge Consultants’ Head of AI Capabilities outlines which questions to ask when you want to (responsibly) thrive with AI.

Is AI finally coming of age? As the technology becomes more mature, so must our approach to using it.

If the last twelve months can be defined in part by shock and excitement over what AI is capable of, then the next ten years will be defined by what we choose to do with it once the dust has settled.

What’s needed is a pause for breath, as business leaders consider where they want to go with AI, and how best to ensure we get there safely.

We spoke to Dr Maya Dillon of Cambridge Consultants to unpick the puzzle of establishing guardrails. How can enterprises nurture AI innovation, while also defending against legal quagmires and loss of reputation? Listen now to find out.

SEASON 1 EPISODE 1

Diverse AI founder Toju Duke on why you should care about responsible AI

In the first episode of our series on Responsible AI, we’re shining a light on how to build an AI future that’s secure and safe for everyone. Listen as Toju Duke, author and founder of Diverse AI, defines responsible AI use and explains how to fight bias and protect your online reputation.

When motorcars first became available, they moved painfully slow. But even so, people got hurt.

Those early cars lacked seat belts. Speed limits weren’t enforced. There weren’t even stop lights on the roads. It took injury and accident for our awareness to catch up with our ability.

We believe we’re at the same point with AI. Only just dipping our toe into what’s possible, with huge leaps still to come. Which is why it is now vital to think about seat belts to protect us, and stop signs to protect others.

We spoke to Toju Duke of Diverse AI to learn more about how AI can help us all go faster without damage to trust, reputation, or any of the things that matter most. Listen now to hear what she had to say.
