Event Overview

Artificial intelligence has evolved quickly and today presents incredible opportunities for organisations to gain deeper insights, drive productivity, and reimagine services delivered to customers.

At the same time, the adoption of AI present challenges for organisations in responding to concerns relating to AI, including issues such as consumer privacy and algorithmic bias. To capitalise on the opportunities of AI – it is vital that AI developers, adaptors, and consumers retain trust in AI technologies. Without trust, the enormous benefits presented by AI are compromised. 

A number of high-level AI principles have been developed by companies, governments, and multi-lateral organisations to guide the responsible development of AI. While AI principles are a critical starting point, articulating the values and intent of organisations applying AI - it is the translation of those principles into practice that both matters most and is harder to do.  

CEDA’s ‘AI Principles to Practice’ workshops will examine the practical ways in which high-level AI principles are being translated at the organisational level.  In a Chatham house, collaborative setting, CEDA will bring together senior stakeholders to examine:

  • The central role of trust in underpinning AI adoption in Australian organisations;
  • How organisations are translating AI principles and oversight of their AI usage; and
  • Determine what steps, practices, and processes can be applied within organisations to enable the safe, responsible, and sustainable usage of AI. 

CEDA’s ‘AI principles to practice’ workshops are convened under CEDA’s Public Interest Technology initiative which focuses on how current and emerging technologies can be designed, developed, and adopted in the public interest. 

This is the first in a three-part series of workshops aimed at convening stakeholders from across the banking and financial, telecommunications, and energy retail sectors. Later workshops will bring together stakeholders from across health and education, and transport, construction, and logistics. Findings from these workshops will feed into CEDA’s research and policy agenda in 2021-22.
