Expert Vlogging Series 1.0: How to put AI ethics into practice? | Deepak Paramanand, Ex-Microsoft; AI Product Innovator, Hitachi

This is the AI Policy Exchange Expert Vlogging Series featuring vlogs from our technical/policy experts addressing some of the hardest questions confronting the governance of artificially intelligent technologies.

In each AI Policy Exchange Expert Vlogging Series, we ask all our technical/policy experts a common question. Experts respond to the question through short, illuminating vlogs sent to us. We then upload these vlogs to our YouTube channel and also post them on our website.

We posed the following question to our experts as part of our AI Policy Exchange Expert Vlogging Series 1.0: How to put AI ethics into practice? 

This question arose from findings by public policy and ethics researchers claiming that AI ethics principles & guidelines proposed by various public bodies and private groups in their current form likely have a negligible effect on the safe development, deployment, and use of artificially intelligent technologies.

Deepak joined AI Policy Exchange as a technical/policy expert later in June this year. Deepak is a widely travelled technologist who has gone from BI to AI and everything in between. Across 3 continents he has built AI products in B2B and B2C spaces, dealing with Natural Language Processing and real-time Computer Vision technology. He specializes in building ethical AI products. Currently, at Hitachi, Deepak is looking to put AI in trAIns. Previously at Microsoft, he launched puppets, Microsoft’s first foray in consumer-facing computer vision technology delivered on the Android ecosystem. The product won global accolades and customer appreciation across its 2M+ user base. Deepak’s work at evaluating fairness and bias in AI was called “pioneering” by Microsoft’s Ethics Committee and is being used as an example of doing AI right. A consummate public speaker, Deepak loves talking AI to professionals, graduates, and school children as he tries to decode AI for everyone. Deepak is looking to demystify and communicate AI to the world so that the world is included in the conversation in building and using AI.
