    About his talk

    Building AI you can Trust

    Recent breakthroughs in AI have captured the imagination of the public and business leaders alike due to the potential of AI to impact virtually every sector of industry.

    Delivering on this potential requires emphasizing the reliability and quality of AI-based systems. How do you know if you can trust a system that uses machine learning?

    First, I will give an introduction to AI and some of the reasons to be excited. Then, I will share lessons learned in building AI solutions, discuss how to assess the quality of those solutions, and build trust in applications that use AI.
