Welcome to episode 4 of AI in Action, the podcast that breaks down the hype and explores the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.

Powered by Alldus International the premium AI Workforce Solutions, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI across the world.

Today’s guest on the show is David Bray, Executive Director at the People-Centred Internet Coalition & Senior Fellow at the Institute for Human-Machine Cognition. People-Centered Internet in partnership with the World Bank, World Economic Forum, and IEEE provides support, expertise, and funding for demonstration projects that measurably improve people’s lives using the Internet.

David previously led Bioterrorism Preparedness & Response Program’s tech response to 9/11, anthrax, West Nile, SARS, monkeypox and other international outbreaks. He worked in Afghanistan in 2009 to help “think differently” in military & humanitarian efforts and was awarded DOD’s Joint Civilian Service Commendation Award, the highest-ranking joint civilian service award under the authority of combatant commanders.

Named in the top “24 Americans Who Are Changing the World” by Business Insider in 2016 & a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum, David pioneered the first ever bipartisan Commission reviewing R&D efforts of the entire U.S. Intelligence Community and its unclassified multibillion-dollar budget. He transformed the national organization’s legacy IT with 207+ systems to award-winning solutions in less than two years.

In this fascinating episode, David will talk about:

  • His journey to the People-Centred Internet coalition
  • Humans responsibility to use AI for good
  • The importance of AI ethics and human rights
  • Advice to organizations on applying AI to their business
  • The need to be aware of biases
  • Being mindful of the decisions you make when applying new technology

David will be speaking about the importance of AI Ethics at Our People-Centered Digital Future which takes place on Monday 10 December at Fairmont in San Jose, CA.
