Day 2 explores why trust in AI is no longer a feature, it’s a requirement. DataRobot’s Global AI Ethicist, Haniyeh Mahmoudian, PhD, will address the skepticism surrounding AI solutions, and discuss why it’s critical to approach issues of bias and fairness by implementing trustworthy AI.

- Closing remarks from “Science Guy” Bill Nye and Chris Mattmann, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, on the importance of research and discovery, fighting anti-science sentiment, space exploration, where humanity is headed, and how we can all play a role.
“Every company is now an AI company, and the decision to implement AI is no longer optional,” said Wright. “Knowing this, we’re excited to welcome technologists, corporate leaders, data scientists, researchers, and users at every level to witness the transformational potential of AI on businesses’ bottom line. Our goal is to create a space for transparent discussions around the complexities surrounding AI. We’ll have CEOs share their own hesitations when embracing AI and AI ethicists and educators explore the need for AI we can trust, with actionable roadmaps to help us plan for and handle institutional bias as we look to the future.”
