Mohamed Abdalla -- Social, Ethical and Legal Issues in Computing Lecture Series
Title: Understanding Conflicts of Interest in Ethics of AI Research

Abstract: As more governmental bodies look to regulate the application of AI, it is important that the incentives of those consulted be clearly understood and taken into account. This talk will explore the role of industry funding on AI research and the incentives such funding creates. To do this, we will: i) discuss how conflicts of interest are treated in other fields of academia, ii) quantify financial relationships between researchers and industry, and iii) discuss how young professionals and future researchers should approach the issue of corporate funding.
