      PANEL DISCUSSION: The Business Case for Responsible AI Main

      Responsible AI is no longer optional and it is critical that AI’s use should match our values and understanding of best practices. Consumers and businesses are far more likely to use, trust, and engage with technology if they know it is developed and used responsibly. Companies that don’t engage with AI responsibly are reporting lost revenue, lost customers or even legal fines and lawsuits. With new regulations on the horizon, organizations that aren’t proactive are accruing a technical debt and missing out on a distinct competitive advantage. Join this panel to learn from leaders in the space about how they are implementing responsible AI, what has and hasn’t worked, and the tangible business benefits they have realized as a result

      INNOVATION INSIGHT: Revolutionising the management of virtualized mobile networks via AI-driven traffic insights Track 4

      As mobile operators begin to disaggregate their Radio Access Networks (RANs) and network functions are being virtualized, real-time and predictive knowledge of (per-service) network usage is of critical importance to the management of the compute resources needed to drive the infrastructure, improve efficiency, and lower energy consumption. Overprovisioning is expensive and reactive management is currently based on information that is mostly available offline and thus too late to be useful. In this talk, Paul will explain how Net AI are harnessing the power of AI to quantify application demands in a fast, non-intrusive, and low-complexity way, and how to forecast traffic with high accuracy to efficiently scale compute resources when and where they are needed, with a view to zero-touch network management.

      USE CASE: Surgical Data Challenges and the SAGES Critical View of Safety Challenge Track 3

      Artificial intelligence (AI), specifically machine learning and computer vision, largely depends on vast amounts of annotated data for model training and validation. Data challenges are a well-established methodology in the computer science community for creating large-scale and diverse datasets reflective of a wide range of target features. In surgery, the imaging and video data produced during minimally-invasive procedures presents a unique opportunity to explore AI-based assessment of clinically relevant visual features. The Society of American Gastrointestinal Surgeons (SAGES) is conducting the first surgical data challenge initiated in collaboration between surgeons and computer scientists. The SAGES Critical View of Safety Challenge is creating a worldwide dataset and is fostering a large-scale competition around the development of AI models to detect essential surgical safety measures, such as the critical view of safety in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This talk will elaborate on the key concept of data challenges, the SAGES CVS Challenge in particular, and the significance of surgical artificial intelligence.
