MKAI February Inclusive Forum – Trust in the age of AI: Understandable AI

In part 2 of our ‘Trust in the age of AI series’, four renowned speakers will share their research and ideas around how we can help AI to be more understandable. Distinctly different from the idea of Explainable AI, Understandable AI is about communicating the risks to users and customers and about building trust and privacy by design into data collection and AI models. ‘Understandability’ is about a business culture of transparency and openness towards data, people and social impact.

As always the MKAI Inclusive Forums are open to everyone from all walks of life. Our expert speakers make the subject approachable and comprehensible to help all of us improve our AI-fluency and understanding of the domain.
