Artificial intelligence is going to change the way we work, create and live our lives. While AI’s potential as an aid to human decision making is tremendous, there is also increasing concern about the risks and challenges that AI could bring, such as entrenching and expanding existing inequalities and inaccuracies due to potential biases embedded in the algorithms.

The second Hong Kong Internet Governance Forum (HKIGF) roundtable brings together stakeholders in the field of technology, law, politics, ethics, entrepreneurs, as well as the general public to identify ethical risks and benefits of AI, sketch possible scenarios and discuss the actions needed to grasp opportunities while managing risks.
