I was a panelist in the Ethical Dimensions to AI panel in the 2019 RMDS conference. I would be very much interested in doing either a talk session and/or a panel again on below subjects. * Ethical AI and social implications of algorithmic bias * AI & Future of Work * How enterprises use AI to hire and manage employees? * Why AI ethics training is a multidisciplinary need? * Frameworks and Governance for reducing bias in AI design
