Addressing the Challenges of AI Development through Regulations

In this episode of The Freeman Chronicle Podcast, host Miko Santos delves into the topic of artificial intelligence (AI) and its impact on society.

The discussion begins with a focus on the importance of regulatory requirements for AI applications, particularly in relation to civil rights and equality. The example of testing AI programs for bias, such as in the case of racist decision-making by banks, is highlighted as a way to determine their suitability for use.

The episode also covers the recent executive order signed by US President Joe Biden to address the threat posed by AI.

Additionally, the Optus outage and the implications of AI for academia and everyday people are explored.

Joining the conversation is Associate Professor Niusha Shafiabady from Charles Darwin University, who provides expert insights on the subject.
