Trustworthy AI: Balancing Innovation and Ethical Considerations

Lean Leader Summit 2024

The use of Artificial Intelligence is currently transforming workflows across all industries, with new application scenarios hitting the headlines daily. AI-based systems take on tasks traditionally performed by humans and make decisions autonomously. This session is about the balance between technological progress and social values. We will explore real-world AI applications and discuss ethical dilemmas. To address these challenges, ethical principles essential for building trustworthy AI will be presented, emphasizing transparency, accountability, and fairness. The picture is completed with insights into current regulatory approaches and certification standards that need to be considered in the development and deployment of AI systems.
