Caroline Guillaumin, Head of HR & Communications at Société Générale
Mary L. Gray, Senior Principal Researcher, Faculty Fellow at Microsoft
Kourosh Bahrami, SVP at Henkel Adhesive Technologies
Michael Segalla, Professor Emeritus, Management & Human Resources at HEC Paris
Every week brings news of another company receiving a multimillion Euro fine for violating the digital rights of employees, customers, or citizens. Europe has the strictest digital protections in the world but, curiously fewer than 5% of European companies have independent, ethical review committees which could protect companies and citizens by evaluating the data and computational ethics of their machine learning projects.
You are cordially invited to join the webinar to learn how companies in Europe and the USA are managing the problems that unethical use of consumer and employee data create when machine learning is used to market products, hire and fire people, reject loan applications, and other error prone decision tools. But you will also learn about the tremendous potential the big data sets and advance AI can offer to our societies. The challenge is to simultaneously promote and tame these powerful tools. Your questions will be welcome.
CEMS and HEC Paris address this issue in a joint Leadership Webinar that brings together corporate and academic experts to discuss what companies are, can, and should do to improve their digital ethics.
Since the panelists will discuss the results of their Digital Ethics Survey and the importance of developing a best practice strategy to protect companies and people from rogue algorithms with unethical consequences, you can contribute to this discussion by responding to this short survey here.
