You are invited to join RMDS’ first Ask The Expert Live virtual event featuring our expert guest Merve Hickok, founder of AIethicist and Data Ethics Instructor at University of Michigan School of Information. Merve will give an introduction to her area of expertise and research: all things that deal with AI & ethics, plus how those topics and issues impact you.
The event will take on the style of the popular “ask me anything” format, which means that audience engagement will be a huge part of this event! You will have the opportunity to ask our speaker questions on things like:
- Views on how AI impacts social justice; is there any regulation in sight?
- Her professional career path
- Are there any AI redlines?
- Advice on your own projects and AI questions
- Whatever other topics interest you!
