The Business Integrity Leadership Initiative at the Sam M. Walton College of Business is hosting a new Let’s Talk program focusing on ethical artificial intelligence this spring. The program, open to students, faculty, staff and community members, highlights the business, social, economic and political effects of artificial intelligence (AI) and how to be responsibly tech-savvy. Registration is now open.

J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc., one of the largest supply chain solution providers in North America, is sponsoring the Let’s Talk program, which builds on the strong collaboration between the company and Walton College.

The Business Integrity Leadership Initiative will host three guest speakers this spring, all of whom are experts in emerging technology. To accompany the speaker series, program participants will also have the opportunity to read the book of the semester, Real World AI: A Practical Guide for Responsible Machine Learning by Alyssa Simpson Rochwerger and Wilson Pang.

The speaker series kicks off on Feb. 9 and ends on April 6 with the three experts below:

Peter W. Singer, strategist and senior fellow at The New America Foundation, author and Arizona State University professor of practice
Jerry Jones, executive vice president, chief legal and ethics officer, LiveRamp and senior adviser, Club de Madrid
Alyssa Simpson Rochwerger, director of product, Blue Shield of California, and co-author of this semester’s book, Real World AI
