Join the URI AI Lab and Dr. Rebecca Millsop (PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) while we explore the interaction of AI, society, and ethics by focusing on how the massive amounts of data collected by these systems can be used in problematic ways, increase discrimination, broaden inequity, and engender the violation of human rights.
