Invisible Images: Ethics of Autonomous Vision Systems

The 2017 Symposium brought together over 100 leading experts from industry, academia, civil society, and government to share ideas for technical design, research, and policy directions. Discussions this year focused on the application of AI across four key themes: Rights and Liberties, Labor and Automation, Bias and Inclusion, and Ethics and Governance. These experts spent a day in closed-door talks and discussions, then joined an evening program that was free and open to the public.
