Panelist at the UNICEF’s Global Forum on AI for Children

I’m honored to be invited to the UNICEF’s Global Forum on AI for Children on Nov 30th and Dec 1st.

UNICEF and the Government of Finland will host the Global Forum on AI for Children. This first-of-its-kind, virtual event will gather the world’s foremost children’s rights and technology experts, policymakers, practitioners and researchers, as well as children active in the AI space, to connect and share knowledge on pressing issues at the intersection of children’s rights, digital technology policies and AI systems.

I participated in a breakout session panel on “Ensuring inclusion of and for children in an AI world.” The panel will cover a range of related topics, including how to give children a voice in the development of AI policies and systems, as well as engaging those that represent their best interests.
