Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to reshape virtually every industry, the workforce and, ultimately, the entire economy.
The rapid evolution of AI brings new buzzwords – machine learning, deep learning, neural networks – and many questions about how best to understand and implement these new technologies. Machine learning offers new opportunities and creates risks, particularly for Indigenous communities.
Northeastern University — Vancouver is hosting a half-day workshop on October 21st designed to build your understanding of AI – its terms, tools and solutions – and the importance of Indigenous people being included in this new era of big data and machine learning.
Michael Running Wolf, Northeastern faculty member and founder of Indigenous in AI, and Bethany Edmunds, Director of Computer Science at Northeastern University’s Vancouver Campus will help you understand what AI is and the potential it offers while examining the unique challenges and opportunities that come with including Indigenous knowledge and values.
You’ll also gain a better understanding of the importance of having members of diverse backgrounds shape AI strategies and solutions to ensure a more inclusive future for all of us.
Register online to participate. Prior knowledge and experience in AI or computer science is not required to participate in this workshop.
