Redefining AI

Hosted by Lauren Hawker Zafer

With Ayisha Piotti

Overall, when thinking about regulating AI technologies or using AI, we should aim to strike a balance between fostering innovation and ensuring that the technology is used in a way that aligns with ethical principles and societal values. This episode is, therefore, a key listen that invites us to think about how AI technology has the potential to significantly impact society. It allows us to think about the considerations that need to be made from a regulatory perspective - to ensure that ethical questions are addressed, and we can start to confirm that AI is used fairly and transparently.

Ayisha Piotti is the Managing Partner at the Swiss-based firm RegHorizon. She is also the Director of AI Policy at the Center for Law and Economics of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology - the ETH Zurich.
