While some of these claims are misguided, others point to a real and immediate danger to wider society and the economy. We will discuss some of these dangers, especially those highlighted in the speech of Nobel peace prize winner Maria Ressa and the Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen’s testimony to the US Congress. We will discuss how these dangers could be combatted.<br /><br />Devdatt Dubhashi is a professor of data science and AI at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers.<br /><br /><a href="" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register here to receive the link to the seminar</a> for CHAIR Faculty<p>A Working Lab, office building, Sven Hultins Plats 5, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Chalmers AI Research Centre (CHAIR) is now initiating the CHAIR Faculty, as a first step of stepping up the effort to establish an engaged and visible AI community as a pillar of the centre.</p><div>​The kickoff will be the first event for the members of <em>CHAIR Faculty</em>, which will consist of Chalmers researchers with an interest in AI.
