[17/10/23] The Turing Lectures: Addressing the risks of generative AI | How AI broke the internet (part 2)

About the event

Join the Alan Turing Institute as they explore the various angles of large-language models and generative AI in the public eye. Across three lectures, they aim to provide a comprehensive, thoughtful and engaging understanding of this rapidly emerging field and its impact on society.

As generative AI becomes increasingly sophisticated, its potential to revolutionize the way we interact with data is clear. It has already shown its ability to assist with tasks such as image and video synthesis, text and speech generation, and music composition. However, the rapid development of generative AI models has also raised concerns about their misuse, particularly in the context of disinformation campaigns, deepfakes and online harassment. 

Are generative AI models moving too fast for regulation to keep up? Will the development of generative AI outpace our ability to ensure their responsible use?

In this lecture, Dr Mhairi Aitken will examine what this means for online and offline safety and discuss how society might be able to mitigate these risks. 

Mhairi Aitken is an Ethics Fellow in the Public Policy Programme at The Alan Turing Institute, and an Honorary Senior Fellow at Australian Centre for Health Engagement, Evidence and Values (ACHEEV) at the University of Wollongong in Australia. She is a Sociologist whose research examines social and ethical dimensions of digital innovation particularly relating to uses of data and AI. She was included in the 2023 international list of “100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics”.

 

This series of Turing Lectures is organised in collaboration with The Royal Institution of Great Britain.
