THE RISE OF AI GOVERNMENT

ABOUT BIGITGOV 2020

THE RISE OF AI GOVERNMENT

The notion that AI can be exploited to develop autonomous weapons is very real. But just because we are able to create these terminators, it does not mean we should weaponize AI. 

The pervasiveness of artificial intelligence, from image recognition to natural language processing, will augment government’s potential – from transportation and fighting terrorism, to education and healthcare. 

On the flip side, as progress in AI accelerates from narrow intelligence (specializing in singular tasks) to general intelligence (being as smart as humans), its ethical usage – for instance, whether government should use it to build smart weapons for warfare – has become a key area of debate.

These are just a few of the many outstanding presentations you will hear in BIGIT GOV 2020. 

 

Themed The Rise of AI Government, BIGIT GOV 2020 aptly describes the current state of big data and AI adoption among Asian governments. We are beginning to discover many high-value advanced analytics and AI-augmented solutions that are catalysts to government transformation. 

Come join us for BIGIT GOV 2020. Listen to how AI will power super-intelligent societies and precision agriculture. Be impressed by how AI-equipped financial regulators detect dirty money. Be assured by how data science and AI will keep an eye on child abuse. 

Come join us in lively panel discussions on whether AI can think creatively, and whether government should play a pivotal role in addressing data and AI ethics. 

And so much more.

EXPERT PRESENTATION: CyberSecurity

The ability of AI to analyse and correlate vast amounts of data to rapidly recognize cyber threats is a boon to governments and industries. But, there is also a flip side to AI’s power to thwart cyberattacks. Listen to this expert presentation on how hackers are also weaponizing AI and using it for large-scale, automated cyber assaults.

10:30AM | MORNING REFRESHMENT BREAK
11:00AM | Islamic civilization in the era of intelligent machines

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  AI and Islam

As we approach the technological singularity where AI can potentially exceed humans in intelligence, we could very well witness the creation of a new God. The AI God. What is Islam’s stand on AI as it moves from narrow to general intelligence, and ultimately to superintelligence? Listen to this expert presentation on how Muslims can play a crucial role in adopting AI and making sure AI operates within the framework of Islamic ethics even as it approaches humans in its intelligence.

12:30PM | NETWORKING LUNCH SESSION
2:00PM | Case Study: Malaysian Health Data Warehouse Uplifting citizens' well-being through advanced healthcare analytics

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  ADVANCE HEALTH ANALYTICS

The Malaysian Health Data Warehouse (MyHDW) was conceived as a single source of truth for healthcare data from public and private clinics and hospitals. To date, data on 60 million patient visits have been amassed. Listen to this expert presentation on how MyHDW is now in its next phase of deploying a virtual advanced analytics environment for evidence-based healthcare decision making.

4:00PM |Panel Discussion: Can AI think creatively?

PANEL DISCUSSION

The AI we encounter today is narrow AI, programmed to perform very specific tasks it was trained for. But will AI one day encroach into the space that we consider uniquely human? Yes, we are referring to creativity. Join us in this panel discussion on what it means to be creative, and whether machines can ever truly be creative, in a human sense.

EXPERT PRESENTATION: ETHICAL AI

As AI technology quickly becomes embedded in every part of our lives numerous questions arise on issues of regulation and ethics at every stage of the process.

These questions become even more pertinent as the technology is implemented in critical government sectors such as immigration, law enforcement and the justice system. Listen to this expert presentation on the ethical considerations – fairness, trust, transparency, equality and accuracy – in processing data against a set of algorithms to make decisions about individuals, communities and society.

Sensors and the internet amass a shocking amount of data from individuals. And as AI becomes more adept in processing this data to track everything about us, its ethical usage has become a key area of debate for businesses, individuals and governments. Join us in this panel discussion on whether prevailing laws are adequate or whether governments should step up their game in addressing data and AI ethics.
