Keynote lecture di Linda Leopold (Head of Responsible AI & Data H&M Group, Sweden)

Any conversation about artificial intelligence today will inevitably touch upon ethics and responsibility. How can we best use this powerful technology as a force for good, to benefit both people and our planet? And how do we make sure that it doesn’t become a mirror of existing prejudices and inequalities in our societies?
Linda Leopold will share the story of how a global fashion company put ethics and sustainability at the center of its AI journey – seeing AI as a tool that amplifies, rather than replaces, all the human intelligence, knowledge, and creativity in the organization.
