Emotion AI Summit 2018

Trust in AI

September 6th
The State Room - Boston, MA 

 

Trust in AI

We live, work and play alongside Artificial Intelligenceit’s ingrained in the fabric of our lives. It can be seen in the devices and technologies we use across society: at home, in the places we work, and in our cars.

Today, AI is doing things on our behalf. It’s making us more efficient, faster and sometimes even happier. But with so many aspects of life being touched by AI, we’re at a precipice, as the technology increasingly takes on roles traditionally held by humans, and becomes more personal in the ways that it interacts with us. As such, we need to ask ourselves: what it takes for humans to trust AI to make the right decisions—decisions that influence our lives, and for the greater good. And not only that, but how can AI trust in humans?

There are numerous examples where this new social contract does not existor notions of trust have been violated. How can we, as an ecosystem, come together to realize "Trust in AI"? What are the considerations and challenges? What does success look like?

Join us at this year’s Emotion AI Summit where we will discuss Trust in AI, and how this manifests itself in vastly different areas: from automotive and robotics, to healthcare, education and even advertising. We will also explore how Emotion AI is a key component of building trust between humans and technology.

Trust in AI: On the Go!

The automotive industry is under disruption: rapid advances in autonomous driving, new car companies going direct to consumers, and a rise of ride sharing. We see more automation aiming to make driving safer and more enjoyable, but causing a lot of consumer distraction and frustration. All of these dynamics are forcing car manufacturers to not only improve road safety, but also to rethink the future of transportation and the consumer brand experience. Trust is at the core of this. In this session automotive thought leaders will explore how AI can build trust in next-generation vehicles.

Trust in AI: The Investor Perspective

Riding the AI wave, nearly every startup seeking investment is a machine learning company building the next new thing in AI.  What do investors really look at when evaluating AI pitches? How do they separate truth from hype? And, in this vast AI landscape, what do investors see as the next opportunity?

Trust in AI: At Work!

AI is transforming the enterprise and helping reimagine the future of work. From how we acquire and develop talent, to how teams collaborate and how brands engage with their clients. How can automation foster workplace intelligence, making us more productive, smarter, more creative and collaborative? How can corporations build brand trust?

But, would you trust AI to hire on your behalf?  Would you trust AI enough to delegate your work to it?  Is AI up to the task of strengthening brand trust?

Trust in AI: At Home and for Health!

AI is engrained in the devices we use every day, making our interactions more persuasive and effective.  

Intelligent Virtual Assistants (IVAs) will become the ubiquitous interface through which we engage with technology. Conversational and perceptual, IVAs are designed to make our lives easier, more productive and sometimes even happier and healthier. In what ways can IVAs augment our daily activities at home and enhance our overall well-being? And do we trust that their recommendations take our best interest to heart?  

AI is also rewiring concepts of healthcare delivery, augmenting the critical work traditionally done by human medical experts. When the accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of medical problems and mental health issues is fueled by AI, how can we establish trust and empathy between clinicians and patients?  How can the new field of emotive medicine help realize trust?.
