Distinguished Speaker Series - Ethics and Social/Corporate Responsibility: Ethical Issues in an Age of Technology
From Yew Ming YAP
I will discuss the AI ethical principles that have developed internationally and how these have been incorporated into Singapore’s Model AI Governance Framework. I will also examine the tools that have been developed to support industry in their pursuit of trustworthy AI.
Vikneswaran s/o Kumaran:
In my presentation, I will touch on data privacy principles, the importance of ethical practices in the use of data, and the issues that can arise in the creation of large data-sets used to train AI models.
If we think of metaverses as virtual worlds or countries, then each virtual world or country will have governing laws and regulations. The question of ethics is then about the design of law. What principles should apply in this design? Should there be separate laws? Law sets the parameters on what is right or wrong, while ethics sets the decision-making framework on what is right or wrong. Together, let’s explore these questions from the perspective of Avium.
