Weekend of AI 2020
Rounding of 500 days of AI by organising a weekend event
This is day 492 of my personal blog project to write about AI for every day over 500 days. I thought it would be nice to gather some of the people that I met along the way for a weekend event with discussions on different topics.
I bought WeekendofAI.com.
The idea for the event is
“All conversations — no presentations!”
I enjoy presentations, but often presentations can get very promotional or with people selling various products or services.
Saying this people do of course to some extent promote themselves when they just talk, however I thought this format would be more comfortable, and perhaps could be exported as podcasts.
I thought of this more as a weekend-long open brainstorm to sum up learning and discuss different ways forward.
The 16th — 18th of October is when it will be happening, not big thing, not wildly promoted.
These are the current topics for how I would like to shape the event,
Friday = ‘AI in government, city and climate’
The 16th of October. How do we govern with artificial intelligence?
10.00–11.00 — Breakfast session on diversity and inclusion in AI
11.00–12.30 — AI in the government
13.00–14.30 — AI and the city
15.00–16.30 — Climate, nature and AI
Saturday = ‘AI Explanations, Collaborations and Algorithmic Audits’
The 17th of October. What possibilities and pitfalls can be seen in current applications of artificial intelligence?
11.00–12.30 — Tech Podcasters Breakfast Party
13.00–14.30 — XAI (Explainable Artificial Intelligence) as a field of research
15.00–16.30 — Collaborating on AI: interdisciplinary collaborations
17.00–18.30 — Power: hardware, digital sovereignty and national capabilities
19.00–20.30 — Algorithmic Audits
21.00–22.30 — Dark conversation: gendered and racist applications of AI
Sunday = ‘National AI Strategies, Talent and Education’
The 18th of October. What are nation states doing to educate and attract talent?
11.00–12.30 — Sunday breakfast session on tech policy and regulation
13.00–14.30 — Social data and AI
15.00–16.30 — AI policy and (in)security
17.00–18.00–500 days of AI
My idea is to invite 2–3 friends or people I have met for each learning session.
I will get an event up and running.
It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
Only a few days left of a great adventure.
