Responsible and Ethical Governance of AI Models


The proliferation of tools facilitating the democratization of Artificial Intelligence has necessarily accelerated the need to develop and deploy those tools responsibly.  Whether it be as simple as a linear regression, as automatic as an unsupervised machine learning model, or as powerful as a deep neural network, the ease which non-data scientists can create these models requires that an ethical framework and a formal governance structure be in place before, during, and after the models are developed.  In this talk, I will discuss the implementation of responsible AI practices and how one might integrate them practically in bureaucratic and administrative processes likely already in place in many organizations.
