What's On

Registration Closed

AI and data science are making great strides in Hong Kong. Firms have become adaptive to the values and dangers that the technology brings - be it a new COVID-19 AI tool that tells doctors the likelihood of patients becoming severely ill or AI-enabled loan decisioning. The applications are boundless. Whilst AI bears a multitude of opportunities, there have also been concerns about its disruptive impact. Will AI replace humans in the workplace? How is personal privacy impacted by AI developments? What can be done to prevent AI bias?

Join this webinar to learn more about the state of Ethical AI in Hong Kong and hear from industry leaders on how they are addressing the most pressing questions in Ethical AI today.
