Synthetic Intelligence Forum convened a Panel Discussion about Privacy and AI. Privacy is a critical topic for developers, users, and regulators of AI solutions. Regulatory regimes, such as the General Directive on Data Privacy (GDPR), impose strict penalties and harsh sanctions for violators. The co-evolution of increasingly sophisticated AI applications and comprehensive privacy legislation have created many opportunities and challenges for stakeholders of AI technologies. Panelists in this discussion included: • Ikjot Saini, PhD (Assistant Professor, University of Windsor) – • Sepideh Ghanavati, PhD (Assistant Professor, University of Maine) – • Maryam Salehijam, PhD (Mentor, Founder Institute; and Advisor, Paqt) – The moderator is: • Vik Pant (Founder, Synthetic Intelligence Forum) – These subject matter experts discussed the application of mission-critical, industrial-strength, and production-grade privacy solutions in organizational settings. The format of this conversation was a free flowing and easy going discussion between the panelists. Panelists discussed common governance and compliance problems in the industry as well as state of the art privacy techniques that are relevant for AI use cases.

This installment of the MIT Sloan Experts Series features Renée Richardson Gosline, Senior Lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management and a Principal Research Scientist at MIT’s Initiative on The Digital Economy. She discusses her research, which looks at the consequences of how and when people trust bots and algorithms to help them make decisions, and what it means for society at large. Cathy O’Neil, the renowned data scientist and author of the book, “Weapons of Math Destruction,” also appears on the program. She talks about how AI-infused technologies are increasingly used in ways that reinforce racial exclusion and how the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened inequalities. Kathy Baxter, Principal Architect of The Ethical AI Practice at Salesforce, weighs in on what companies are doing to meet these challenges. In particular, she discusses the creation of model cards, which are designed to provide critical information about how Salesforce’s machine learning and AI models work—including inputs, outputs, the conditions under which models work best, and ethical considerations in their use.

There are many myths about AI: that you need to hire elusive Stanford PhDs, that you need big data and millions of dollars worth of computers, and that only a select few can actually use AI. These are all false. In this talk, I will share how AI is being effectively used by people across a range of domains, with a much lower barrier to entry than you might expect. In fact, domain expertise is still incredibly valuable, and those with deep knowledge of your domain are best positioned to apply AI. Rachel Thomas is a professor at the University of San Francisco Data Institute and co-founder of, which created the “Practical Deep Learning for Coders” course that over 200,000 students have taken and which has been featured in The Economist, MIT Tech Review, and Forbes. She was selected by Forbes as one of 20 Incredible Women in AI, earned her math PhD at Duke, and was an early engineer at Uber. Rachel is a popular writer and keynote speaker. Looking for more?

Stuart Russell is a world-leading computer scientist and a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He’s also the author of the book Human Compatible. In this in-depth video interview, Professor Russell addresses our collective unease around the rise of artificial intelligence, exploring the impact on jobs and the scope of ‘general purpose’ AI, from the humble domestic thermostat to the attention-hungry bleeps and pings that keep us glued to our smartphones. “If you nudge somebody hundreds of times a day for days on end, you can move them a long way in terms of their beliefs, their preferences, their opinions,” says Russell. “Algorithms are having a massive effect on billions of people in the world. I think we’ve given them a free pass for far too long. You can also listen to Stuart Russell debating the promise and peril of AI in this podcast interview: The World Economic Forum is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation.

If the advent of sex robots isn’t strange enough, there will soon be lesbian sex robots. RealDoll, the company making the machines, is aiming to enter the LGBTQ market with its latest creations. We are indeed living through strange times. We’re slowly getting more videos from the Australian concentration camps, and the situation continues to get worse. It’s no longer just a conspiracy theory; Australians are not allowed to leave their lodgings and are being threatened with $5,000 fines for going out to do laundry without a mask. Can Australia still be saved? Or is it crossing the point of no return? The Chicago public school system is requiring all schools to adopt new signage to make their bathrooms more inclusive. Yet another example of the LGBTQ agenda being pushed on children. We’re joined in-studio by Nick Fuentes, political commentator and host of “America First,” and Eric July, BlazeTV contributor and host of “For Canon Sake.” Nick Fuentes: Host – America First @ Website – Eric July: Twitter – @EricDJuly YouTube – @YoungRippa59 BlazeTV Contributor Enemies Within The Church: Elijah and Sydney think EVERY Christian and Patriot needs to see this film and then share it with everyone that you know.
