Professor Jungpil Hahn works for the Department of Information Systems and Analytics at the School of Computing, National University of Singapore (NUS). The Professor is an advocate for using AI responsibly.

“AI developers and business leaders should consider all relevant ethical considerations not only in order to be compliant with regulations but also for engendering trust from its consumers and users.”

“The primary challenge in applying AI ethical principles is that much of the discourse surrounding AI ethics and governance is too broad in the sense that the conversation surrounding it is at a very high level,” Professor Hahn said.

“How to actually operationalise and put it into action is still quite underdeveloped, and vague.”

The rapid uptake and widespread use of generative AI systems has put a spotlight on AI ethics and governance. The ‘lack of clear and explicit’ standards led Professor Hahn and colleagues to study the evolution of AI Governance.

“The “black box” nature of AI models, which makes it impossible to fully (exhaustively) know how it will perform/behave.”  Professor Hahn added.
