About: Advancements in AI methodologies have accelerated exponentially in recent years, and their applications in business and societal domains have become ubiquitous. On the one hand, this presents significant opportunities for using these tools to address hard societal and business challenges. On the other hand, the use of AI methodologies in such societal domains has raised several ethical and trust-related concerns and challenges requiring urgent policy design. 

This workshop aims to bring together experts and practitioners from various relevant disciplines to carve an interdisciplinary research agenda for (a) developing impactful yet responsible AI solutions in societal and business domains and (b) designing policy frameworks for addressing concerns arising from the use of AI in such domains.

  • Sheldon Jacobson, founder professor of computer science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
