Artificial Intelligence and Trust: A Global Roundtable

Given the data-intensive nature of approaches such as machine learning, and the increasing ubiquity of AI in everyday products and services, there is a growing interest within the privacy community to understand its implications. At the same time, a tremendous amount of innovation and entrepreneurship in the AI space is emerging from Asia and Latin America, not just western economies, to address local challenges. This global roundtable focused on trust, which is essential to the relationship between governments and citizens, companies and users, as well as amongst users. As a concept fundamentally intertwined with privacy, while also being essential to social good and commerce, it is integral to the development of AI. This roundtable explored barriers to trust, and solutions to address them, deriving from multiple disciplines
