Checkmate Humanity: The how and why of Responsible AI

AI is changing the way individuals, organisations, governments and society work and live. But will AI be ethical and how responsible will it be? And what does this even mean? Checkmate Humanity: the how and why of responsible AI sets out to answer these questions and maps the potential harms that AI may cause from individual harms right through to full existential risk. We introduce the world’s first taxonomy of AI harms and then offer solutions and recommendations so that we can build a Responsible AI future.

Crisis Leadership: Bushfires + COVID19 - A new model emerges

Crisis Leadership: Bushfires + COVID19 - A new model emerges

During the Summer of 2019 Australia was hit by a crisis – the wildfires destroyed 46 million acres of land, 34 people were killed, 1 billion wildlife perished and 6,000 properties were incinerated.
