The AI challenge days will be held on Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 27th & Thursday 28th January 2021 at 09.15 for a 09.30 start- 13.00 finish.
The sessions will be hosted by ‘table hosts’ held in breakout rooms; students will attend these sessions in peer groups. The objective of the session is to spend a thought-provoking hour discussing the host’s topic, discussing a ‘challenge’ and possibly relating it to the context of their research. At the end of each session, there is time to briefly feedback what was discussed.
Programme for Wednesday 27th & Thursday 28th January
Virtual ‘Table Hosts’ and discussion topics
Wednesday 27th January
Malcolm Brown, Director of Mission and Public Affairs for the Church of England
Discussion Topic- “How can ethics be built into AI if the world can’t agree what is ethical?”
Discussion Topic- “”AI-Powered Neural Implants: Ethical and Policy Implications of Governing Data about Thoughts”
Discussion topic: “Health Data for the greater good – can we build a manifesto for ethical use of health data at scale?”
Data sharing during COVID-19 spotlights what’s possible when health data is openly shared. But for most other conditions, data is still bound by privacy protections. Patients, politicians, regulators and the public are concerned and attitudes to sharing health data vary widely depending on who is receiving it and their perceived motivations. Discussions of harms have focused on privacy breaches but what about harms caused by not sharing?
