Executive Roundtable: Building Trust – How We Can Create Reliable and Safe AI SystemsVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Exclusive Round Table With Ping An Chief Scientist [BY INVITATION ONLY]
Increasingly, we rely on artificial intelligence systems to evaluate data and make decisions. One company leading in this field is Ping An, an insurance company that is one of China’s largest corporates. How does Ping An use AI, and how are they making sure their systems are reliable and trustworthy? Are corporates in China, Europe, and the U.S. approaching these issues differently? And what kind of national and global governance is needed to ensure trust in AI?
This event is co-hosted by the Swiss Re Institute, the St. Gallen Symposium, and the Asia Society Northern California and Switzerland Centers, and is moderated by Heather Evans, Director of Frontier Technology Research at Asia Society Northern California.
The invitation to the webcast is exclusively reserved for partners of Asia Society Switzerland, the St. Gallen Symposium and Swiss Re Institute. During the webcast, which will be held in English, you will have the opportunity to ask questions to Dr. Jing Xiao.
