Artificial intelligence, analytics, machine learning... it's all powered by data. In this world of exponentially growing digital experience touch points, data is being generated that is faster, bigger, and more complex than ever. As the intelligence moves to the edge and AI-enabled experiences become the norm for interfaces, we will have to be prepared with a solid understanding of what's possible now and in the future. We especially need to properly consider the ethical and potentially societal changing ramifications of future AI development. How do we create the right levels of oversight that can protect us but also not stifle critical innovation? How do we properly consider data in its raw form and build solutions that protect customer values throughout the stack? And finally, what roles do governments, suppliers, researchers, and the public play by working together? Only by understanding the ethical, epistemological, personal, and legal aspects of the data can we hope to empower a future of trusted AI.
