AI ethics and regulation for a trustworthy AI ecosystem

As AI is becoming an increasingly pervasive tool for enabling products and services with significant impact on the lives of people and society, there are growing concerns about the potential negative consequences of automated decision making systems such as bias, last of explainability and loss of human agency. In this presentation we review some of the causes of these concerns, consider the ethical dimensions of the use of AI and consider some of the regulatory approaches that policy makers are exploring to support a trustworthy AI ecosystem.
