Topic 1:    AI Safety By Design
Speaker:  Kasia Chmielinski  (Co-Founder of the Data Nutrition Project)
Time:  Saturday 05/25/2024 5:00 pm CDT

In this talk, Chmielinski will delve into the concept of "AI safety by design," advocating for the integration of a safety mindset into the product development cycle from its inception. The discussion will encompass a range of topics, including maintaining dataset integrity and transparency, adopting trust and safety protocols for generative AI, and highlighting tangible examples of user-centered design in deployment—moving beyond theoretical discourse to actionable strategies. Discover how the proactive addressing of potential harms and the implementation of care-driven practices can pave the way for building better tech that truly serves everyone.

Topic 2:    AI Humans, Machines, and Work: The Future is Now
Speaker:  Dr. Moshe Y. Vardi  (Distinguished Professor at Rice University)
Time:  Monday 05/27/2024 7:00 pm CDT

In this talk,  Professor Vardi will dissect the two schools of economic thinking have for many years been engaged in a debate about the potential effects of automation on jobs: will new technology spawn mass unemployment, as the robots take jobs away from humans? Or will the jobs robots take over create demand for new human jobs? He will present data that demonstrate that the concerns about automation are valid. In fact, technology has been hurting working-class people for the past 40 years. The discussion about humans, machines and work tend to be a discussion about some undetermined point in the far future. But it is time to face reality. The future is now.
