Cognitive Computing it’s Everywhere - but what about implications for the Earth?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cognitive Computing, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence - these terms are bandied about everywhere these days and more importantly they are actually in use primarily in the private and government intelligence sectors. However, it isn’t obvious that ethical concerns such as privacy, security, etc. are often embedded within these systems.

In this session, we will present a number of use cases showing a variety of ways and places where these methods are being used (e.g., facilitating targeted crawls, analysing data, enriching the context of data or information). We welcome contributions of your own use cases.

The session will conclude with a discussion of the ethical implications for humanity and its environment.
