NEW: White Paper

As AI continues to progress and businesses across the globe benefit from its capabilities, it's important to ensure that the technology is being harnessed for good, to create a better, fairer society. AI systems are already superior to humans in certain tasks such as image recognition, data analysis and problem-solving tasks. These advances present a wealth of ethical questions surrounding biases that could appear in the data, security issues, and potential consequences if systems are hacked or used irresponsibly. RE-WORK's recently published white paper hones in on these issues and challenges, with contributions from experts from the likes of Accenture, Woebot, McGill University, Barclays, LinkedIn and more.
