Nell Watson

The third speaker for our next salon is Eleanor ‘Nell' Watson! Nell is a Machine Intelligence engineer who pioneered vision-based body measurements at her company QuantaCorp. Nell deeply values protecting human rights and strives to introduce ethics, safety, and the values of human spirit into A.I. Nell chairs multiple organizations such as EthicsNet.org, CulturalPeace.org and Pacha.org. Additionally, Nell serves as Senior Scientific Advisor to The Future Society at Harvard. We are increasingly relying upon machine intelligence for sensitive tasks. However, acting in a prosocial way requires learning the preferences of others. How can we teach this to machines? EthicsNet is building a community, one with the purpose of creating datasets to socialise A.I. EthicsNet is asking input from all around the world, what good values look like to them. So that we can teach machines to meet us where we are, avoid monopolist moral narratives, and create a unique passport of our values.
