Navigating Society’s Future and Exploring Biases in Artificial Intelligence
Join the Queensland AI Hub Bundaberg Chapter, Regional Business HQ, Ergon Energy and ACS for the Conversations that Matter with Tracey Spicer.
In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, AI is at the forefront of innovation, influencing industries, shaping our daily lives. It’s not a matter of if it will be used, but which platform will be the eventual winner. As with all new innovations, AI is also raising questions about ethics and the future of humanity. At the latest instalment of the Conversations that Matter event, Tracey Spicer, a renowned journalist and author, will generously tell her story of how she has overcome gender biases in her career and how these biases have been entrenched in the thinking that’s gone into the foundations of AI programming.
