Dr. Joydeep Ghosh was a featured speaker at last month’s Brooklyn 6G Summit in New York City.


The 10th-annual Brooklyn 6G Summit was hosted at New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering by NYU Wireless and Nokia. This year’s theme was “Creating the Foundation for 6G.” Ghosh’s talk, “Towards Building Certifiably Trustworthy AI Systems,” is summarized below:


“With the ever-increasing application-scope and capabilities of AI-driven systems come increased risks of unforeseen or malignant behavior, posing substantial risks to business reputations and to the public at large. How can one construct AI systems that are more responsible and trustworthy by design, assess their risks and regulate their behavior without seriously limiting their development and deployment? It is possible to develop a certification process for the trustworthiness of an AI system like the LEED certification program for green buildings that is now widely used?


I will point out key issues to consider and some recent developments towards this ambitious goal, including the pioneering work of The Responsible AI Institute. I’ll also sketch out notable recent developments in the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape around AI.”


 Ghosh is the current Schlumberger Centennial Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the founder-director of IDEAL (Intelligent Data Exploration and Analysis Lab). He has been an IEEE Fellow since 2004 and joined WNCG in 2012. Read more about Ghosh’s work here.
