Confidence and trust in AI is a prerequisite to it’s wide-scale adoption and impact. Current adoption of AI in the enterprise is getting stalled due to risk, and compliance concerns around black-box models and poor data quality.

Youhua Bengio ’s presentation

Yoshua Bengio
Scientific Director / Mila,
Full Professor / U. Montreal

I believe that there are fairly generic principles which explain our intelligence and will allow us to build machines at least as intelligent as us one day. If we don’t self-destruct in the meantime. I believe that our current political-social-economic structures are not appropriate to manage the increased power which science and technology is putting in our hands endangering the natural equilibrium of this planet
on which we rest to continue thriving, as a species.
