April 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The next webinar in the Responsible AI Network (RAIN) series will focus on the intersection of technology innovation, ethics, and sustainability with the IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.

Event Overview:

Since 2015, the IEEE Standards Association has been at the forefront of advocating and developing global standards, principles, and practices of ethical and sustainable artificial intelligence (AI). In this webinar, Australia’s IEEE representative, Ruth Lewis, will introduce you to a range of resources, standards, and a certification program available to organisations of all sizes.
