Who Can Benefit From This Conversation?

Overall, when thinking about the regulation of AI technologies or the use of AI, we should be aiming to strike a balance between fostering innovation and ensuring that the technology is used in a way that aligns with ethical principles and societal values. This episode is therefore a key listen that invites us to think about how AI technology has the potential to significantly impact society. It provides an opportunity for us to think about the considerations that need to be made from a regulatory perspective - to ensure that ethical questions are addressed, and we can start to confirm that AI is used in a fair and transparent way.
