It focused on identifying, exploring, and addressing the opportunities and challenges of Artificial intelligence. AI-related topics and issues was explored from the perspectives of different actors, and by looking at a set of thematic core areas, such as social justice, health and wellbeing, education, data and infrastructure, law and governance, and employment and workplace.
Participants included representatives from advocacy, philanthropy, media, policy, and industry, who will address both the opportunities and challenges of AI-based technologies through the lens of inclusion.
