🎙️ Ivana supports businesses in their privacy by design programmes, especially in relation to Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technology.
She was awarded Woman of the Year in 2019 in the Cyber Security Awards in recognition to her growing reputation as an advocate of equality, privacy and ethics at the heart of tech and AI.
Ivana’s first book, An Artificial Revolution, was released this year and focuses on how technology is reshaping the world, and the global geopolitical forces underpinning this process. As countries respond to the COVID crisis, the book demonstrates how important it is to ensure we do not sleepwalk into technosolutionism, algorithms replacing policy and computing replacing the law.
🎧 In this episode, Ivana asks if rather than technology adapting to us, are we being forced to adapt to technology.
She makes the case that despite the weight of pressure on AI to be explainable, that this wouldn’t be a desirable outcome for individuals.
We talk about how corporates are inviting legislation for data and AI, so they can innovate more freely, but some governments in the West are failing to establish trust themselves as to what data they are collecting and how it may be used in the future. Ivana says that whilst AI explainability may not be what we desire, product and service transparency is. We have a right to know the environmental and social impact connected to the supply chain of a product, even down to the environmental footprint of large data centres running AI models.
Finally, she says companies can and will adapt successfully to new AI legislation, we have seen this over and over again in other industries that offer blueprints for how to transform and change.
