Upcoming events
KINTalk: The impact of AI on work: predictive policing - 11 October

This KINTalk edition is part of Amsterdam eWeek, which is an international festival that brings more than 25.000 professionals to Amsterdam annually for a week of cutting-edge events related to e-business, digital media, online marketing, e-commerce, and technology. 

During this KINTalk, two inspiring speakers will talk about the impact of Artificial Intelligence on our work. The presentations promise to be creative and thought-provoking, sparking a conversation that we continue afterwards with drinks. Dick Willems, a data scientist at the Dutch Police and the creator of the predictive policing algorithm “CAS” will elaborate on the process of designing, further developing and implementing algorithmic technologies. Professor Marleen Huysman, director of the KIN Center for Digital Innovation, will build on the many rich cases from her embedded research to debunk frequently occurring biases related to the impact of AI in organisation to ultimately arrive at a more productive perspective on the (im)possibilities of AI.

Sign-up for the event here.
