报告摘要：In the past few decades, artificial intelligence (AI) technology has experienced swift developments, changing everyone’s daily life and profoundly altering the course of human society. However, recent research and AI applications indicate that AI can cause unintentional harm to humans. In this talk, I will first present the good, the bad, and the ugly of AI with real-world examples. To avoid the adverse effects that AI could bring to people, so people can fully trust and live in harmony with AI technologies, we have to tame the bad and the ugly of AI. Consequently, trustworthy AI has recently garnered increased attention. Trustworthy AI is a large and complex subject, involving various dimensions. I will focus on the six most crucial dimensions in achieving trustworthy AI: Safety & Robustness, Nondiscrimination & Fairness, Explainability, Privacy, Accountability & Auditability, and Environmental Well-being. For each dimension, I will briefly introduce the recent related technologies.
