Chris will address the applicability of ethics to artificial intelligence. As the AI/Engineering leader of the multi-disciplinary AI Responsibilities team at Lockheed Martin, Chris shares responsibility for Lockheed Martin's AI ethics strategy, and is one of the primary authors of their AI ethics policies and guidelines (in partnership with his counterpart from the corporate Ethics team).

In this talk, Chris will start by addressing how ethical concerns around artificial intelligence fit into AI research, development, deployment, and operationalization – along with legal and regulatory constraints. He will finish by addressing existing ethical frameworks for AI, and how they need to be extended into the future.
