In 2017, society started treating biased algorithms & privacy-related issues seriously. Now, in light of this year's revelations about the misuse of personal user data, cyber threats to elections, & upcoming GDPR policy implementation, we are at a turning point as to how data-driven technologies & AI will shape the future.
How can we ensure that the development of sophisticated machine intelligence is framed by ethical, human-first, boundaries?
