Joseph Hannon To Present "Ethics of AI" Seminar at New Jersey State League of Municipalities Mini Conference

June 11, 2024

Genova Burns Partner and Labor Law specialist Joseph M. Hannon, Esq. will present a seminar entitled "Ethics of AI" at the 2024 New Jersey State League of Municipalities Mini Conference on June 12th. 

This session will address the potential ethical dilemmas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an evolving resource and technology for governmental activities. Conventional thought is that AI may make informed recommendations devoid of any bias or subjectivity; however, AI decisions are not always intelligible to humans and may be susceptible to inaccuracies, discriminatory outcomes, and embedded or inserted bias. This session will provide the historical background for ethical AI; provide examples of ethical AI failures and suggest ways for using AI in a government context and ethical manner. The presentation will be informative, thought-provoking and entertaining through the use of multi-media.
