HCI4SouthAsia presents “AI for the Next Billion”, a seminar and workshop series where experts from diverse disciplines working on Artificial Intelligence — Human-Centered AI, Ethics, Fairness Accountability Transparency and Ethics (FATE), Global Perspectives, Children, AI Policy, Accessibility, Autonomous Vehicles, etc — present and discuss their research and its the implications to society and the world at large, and the South Asian region in particular. Their research asks and addresses uncomfortable and crucial questions to provoke and challenge the current status quo.
Through these seminars, the HCI4SouthAsia community seeks to bridge barriers across disciplines and schools of thought, by bringing together expert researchers, policymakers, entrepreneurs, C-level business executives, and other influential decision-makers and stakeholders for the South Asian region, to engage in conversation about the role, and existence, of human-centred research towards the digital transformation of societies.
The event includes speakers working on cutting edge research on the potential, use, and ethics of AI. The talks cover a wide range of topics such as ethics and human rights in AI, ethical AI for children, and detecting crime using AI, among others. After the talks, is an open interactive panel discussion.
The Keynote speaker for the event will be Prof. Nitin Sawhney who will talk about “Critically Engaging Ethics, Human Rights and Civic Agency in AI”.
