The increasing integration of artificial intelligence into various aspects of society prompts crucial questions about accountability, ethical considerations, and the potential socioeconomic implications of these rapidly advancing technologies. 

Join Rumman Chowdhury, CEO and co-founder of Humane Intelligence, a tech nonprofit and Responsible AI Fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, for a conversation about AI ethics and responsible practices. In this SciCafe, Chowdhury will discuss AI's impact on society, improving access to AI, and how to be thoughtful about language models and harm reduction in machine learning.
