Dear Mr. Sagar,

I am writing to follow up on our invitation to you for attending our next Development Seminar on “When Should We Trust Artificial Intelligence?” with Dr. Vasant Dhar, Professor, Stern School of Business, NYU.

Abstract: Modern day AI machines learn and improve themselves based on ever-increasing amounts of data that humans and machines generate with each passing day. This happens largely through supervised learning which is a major branch of Artificial Intelligence. But such machines also make mistakes. In his talk, Dhar will walk us through various situations in our everyday lives – investing, playing sports, riding in driverless cars, using social media platforms – to encourage us to question the faith we put in technology. He proposes methods to inform executive and policy makers in evaluating the risks associated with data infrastructure initiatives, such as those proposed in his recent Hindustan Times editorial.
