In Week 3, we had Dan Liebau from Lightbulb Capital, and Sri Krishnamurthy from QuantUniversity discuss Ethical Use of AI in Financial Markets. Here is a summary of the workshop.
As AI and ML penetrates the financial industry, there are growing concerns about ethical use of AI in Finance. In this talk, Dan will focus on how the AI can be operationalized to help industry professionals and executive teams alike think about opportunities, risks as well as required actions factoring in ethics in our data-driven world.
In this week’s event, Dan talked about a range of topics regarding the Ethical Use of AI in Financial Markets. Such as, who needs to control who?, governments & the ethical use of AI, and principles. Dan is an expert on AI ethics and has written a chapter in a Wiley Publication called “The AI Book”. He dove into the different principles of ethics in AI by elaborating on what is the issue and recommendations when building AI. The principles include, Fairness, Privacy, Transparency, Explainability and Accountability.
He concluded that “Machine Learning cannot be considered an emerging technology anymore” and that it needs to be closely monitored and managed carefully.
