Fairness, Accountability, Transparency (FAT)/Asia Conference

The Fairness, Accountability, Transparency (FAT)/Asia conference was held at Digital Hub Asia, in partnership with the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Initiative and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung. Digital Hub Asia itself is an organisation conceived by the Berkman Klein Centre at Harvard University based in Hong Kong.

The conference was held to address the lack of discussion on artificial intelligence (AI) and its implications in the region. Some of the main questions being considered were on biases in AI and how to ensure its transparency and accountability. The conference also discussed geopolitics and the political economy dimensions in AI development.

Among some developments in Asia, a paper by Vidushi Marda about the limitations of data driven technologies was mentioned as well as some of her recommended approaches.
