WORKSHOP | Decoding Artificial Intelligence as A Powerful Tool for Social Good FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

By now you've probably heard at least a few of these terms: artificial intelligence, algorithms, automation... It can be overwhelming to try and see all of these new technologies in perspective, especially since stories about them can be so alarming (killer robots!). In this workshop, Tess Posner, executive director of AI4ALL, will unpack artificial intelligence, discuss some of the actual dangers it poses (like replicating unconscious bias), and then challenge you to figure out how AI can be used as an extremely powerful tool for good.

**You don’t need to know how to code to participate in this workshop—it is accessible to people with all levels of coding and artificial intelligence experience (including no experience!).
