“HOW CAN WE USE AI TO REDUCE INEQUALITY AND SOCIAL BIAS?”
Sennay Ghebreab, professor at the University of Amsterdam and speaker at The Wellbeing Summit for Social Change, shares that AI – if set up with explicit goals that focus on human values – has the power to be a tool for quantifying inequality, which he believes could be one of the first steps to solving this issue. In this talk he shares that if the development of AI is approached in the right way, it could enhance human connection; love; compassion, and wellbeing at scale.
