A few months ago, the Alan Turing Institute played host to a conference on interpretability, safety, and security in AI. This public event brought together leading academics, industrialists, policy makers, and journalists to foster conversations with the wider public about the merits and risks of artificial intelligence technology. The talks are now all available to watch on the Institute’s YouTube channel.
As part of the conference, participants were treated to a lively panel debate, chaired by Hannah Fry, which saw Isaac Kohane, Aleksander Madry, Cynthia Rudin, and Manuela Veloso discuss a variety of topics. Amongst other things, they talked about breakthroughs in their respective fields, holding AI systems (and their creators) accountable, complicated decision making, interpretability, and misinformation.
