Artificial Intelligence (AI), algorithms that enable machines and systems to automate decisions and processes, shape our daily lives. These largely hidden systems determine how data is gathered, analyzed, and presented directly to us or used to make decisions on our behalf. With rapid global urbanization, AI promises not only to drive progress and increase efficiencies within critical public service areas but also offers the potential to develop new markets and support economic growth. At the same time, AI can exacerbate negative effects when it reinforces social biases and inequalities--whether by design or unintentionally. Far from remaining a “virtual threat,” the consequences of ill-considered algorithms can have damaging effects in the real world.

The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute and Microsoft will host a symposium dedicated to exploring the effects of AI-enabled technologies on labor, law enforcement, and public services. The symposium will highlight AI research and its implementation in the urban environment and will raise questions regarding effects of AI on cultural, social, political and economic inclusion. Leaders from academia, industry, and government will discuss the benefits and risks of AI-enabled technologies for labor markets and urban management, and how to promote development and application of AI while identifying and managing potential risks. CITRIS will present preliminary insights from a study of the role of AI-enabled technologies in urban environments
