Brainchip Holdings Vice President Worldwide Sales, Rob Telson has conducted an online discussion session with Dr. Katina Michael, Arizona State University professor and Public Interest Technology advocate.

Katina Michael holds a joint appointment in ASU’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society and School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence, is the director of the Society Policy Engineering Collective (SPEC) and the founding Editor in Chief of the IEE Transactions on Technology and Society. During the discussion, she and Telson debate the human impact of automation, the social responsibility of AI to provide public benefits, when AI should be deployed from a public interest perspective and the positive impact that AI will provide humankind in the future.

“A lot of people view AI initiatives with a certain level of concern and distrust, thinking that technology and automation are going to serve as replacements for human labour and human ingenuity,” said Telson. “But a different approach to this thinking reveals the amazing ability of AI to be assistive to humans, elevate society as a whole and provide benefits for all. Katina has incredible insight into just what the world will look like when AI is deployed to help humans make better decisions and how those decisions will lead to justice, fairness and social responsibility to improve the lives of people all around the world.”
