Lessons from Europe: Deployment of Artificial Intelligence in the Public Sphere Webinar

DATE & TIME

Thursday

June 9, 2022

10:00am – 11:30am ET

OVERVIEW

The application of AI has been largely a private sector phenomenon. The public sector has advanced regulatory questions, especially in Europe, but struggled to find its own role in how to use AI to improve society and well-being of its citizens. The Wilson Center invites you to take a critical look at the use of AI in public service, examining the societal implications across sectors: environmental sustainability, finance, and health. Where are the biases in the design, data, and application of AI and what is needed to ensure its ethical use? How can governments utilize AI to create more equitable societies? How can AI be used by governments to engage citizens and better meet societal needs? The webinar aims to engage in a dialogue between research and policy, inviting perspectives from Finland and the United States.

This webinar has been organized in coordination with the Finnish-American Research & Innovation Accelerator.

EFMD Annual Conference: What Brought Us Here Might Not Get Us There

Target group:

The EFMD Annual Conference has been designed for all those interested in management education and development. It brings together EFMD members, companies, educational institutions and other associations, offering various perspectives and discussions on the conference theme.

Conference theme:

What brought us here might not get us there! After more than 2 years of turmoil, reassessing of where businesses and business schools came from and where they want to go appears more relevant than ever. The programme will therefore look at this theme starting with the individual – what does transformational leadership look like? – then look at organisations – how does the current and future world of work look like and how do we have to adapt it? – and finally look at the wider societal context around issues such as the climate emergency, sustainability goals and the wider global context, where equally a rethink of strategies and actions may become imminent.

What does respecting human rights mean for information and technology companies? What role do they play in democracies and how can they deal with non-democratic regimes? And, given recent events, what is their role during conflict and war?

This event, hosted by the University of Bath’s Centre for Business, Organisations and Society and the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights, will consider what is working, and what needs to work, in the context of human rights and technology companies.

At a time when a spotlight is firmly placed on the (ir)responsibilities of social media companies, platform organisations, search engines, apps and websites, we will reflect on themes of responsibility, ethics and democracy in the digital age.

This event will take place on Zoom.

ABCC Kick-Off Event 2022

Join us in celebrating the kick-off of this year’s Africa Business Concept Challenge! Throughout the event we discuss the overview of the competition, hear a few tips, important competition information, and teams receive guidance from judges for their developing projects, centering the factors that would make a project effective within their community and high-scoring in the competition.

A few gems from the event included Judge Joanne Mwangi-Yelbert, CEO of the PMS Group Ltd in Kenya’s suggestion: “It needs to be a solution for the same old problem, but a different approach. Which has to be replicable, scalable, must be easier, faster, and cheaper. That’s the only way that it will be effective for their community.” and Judge Austin Okere, founder of the Computer Warehouse Group PLC in Nigeria notice that “People think that entrepreneurs as people that are looking for spaceships solutions, no, especially in Africa where the problems are basic. Any solution that solves a problem in a way that enables you to have that impact and is commercially sustainable; you are the entrepreneur.”

If you weren’t able to celebrate live with us, please enjoy the full playback recording at your leisure!

What is the Africa Business Concept Challenge?

The Africa Business Concept Challenge intends to assist young people from the African continent who have an entrepreneurial orientation, a desire to serve their community, and demonstrate the values outlined below. With a focus on promoting responsible capitalism, the competition will identify high potential young people for mentorship and investment.
