Rudeon Snell, Global Senior Director – Industries & Customer Advisory, SAP is set to deliver a talk at AI Expo Africa 2020 titled, “Tackling bias in AI – The key to unlocking trillion dollars of value” in which he will discuss why bias in AI is one of the most critical topics of our time and why it is imperative that bias in AI be addressed as a priority initiative.
Snell stated, “Trust is still the ultimate human currency and no technology solution can ever hope to achieve adoption at scale in society, if its users do not trust the outcomes provided by that solution. This is why solving bias in AI is fundamental to progressing into an AI first world”.
Nick Bradshaw, co-founder of AI Media Group stated, “We are very grateful for the support from SAP at this years’ show – they have been a long term supporter of our event and community. Many of the large vendors like SAP are showcasing many new AI and RPA related features on their platforms at the show.
