With the “Future AI Summit “ coming up from May 6- May 7, we had a chance to speak to one of our AI thought leader, Prof. Toby Walsh. Toby Walsh was named by the Australians newspapers as one of the “rock stars” of Australia’s digital revolution. Professor Walsh is a strong advocate for limits to ensure #AI is used to improve our lives.

We are excited to have him on board! See what he has to say about the Future AI Summit and get a sneak peek of his presentation.
1. What initiatives/projects are on the horizon for your team in 2021?
I’m excited to be starting several new projects focused on AI for Good. They range from identifying forest canopy from space to spotting rips on Australia’s beaches.

  1. What session or topic you are looking forward to discussing at the summit?
    I’m especially keen to hear others describe their AI journey, especially navigating all the ethical minefields of deploying AI at scale.
  2. What do you hope attendees will take away from your session?
    Simple ideas such as ensuring your customer comes away feeling they’re getting a good deal is important. Why do we trust Amazon more than Facebook? Both collect lots of information on us. But while Facebook sells it and keeps the profit, with Amazon,at least, we feel we get a good deal in return!
  3. What are you most looking forward to at Future AI Summit 2021?
    Seeing people in person again. I’ve done more Zooms than a person should in a decade since the pandemic began a year ago.
