Interview Of The Week: Hamilton Mann, Digital For Good Pioneer

Who: Hamilton Mann is the Group Vice President of Digital Marketing and Digital Transformation at Thales, a France-based global aerospace-and-defense company. He leads global transformative initiatives across the organization’s presence in 68 countries, with a focus on digital and ‘deep tech’ innovations such as artificial intelligence, big data, connectivity, cybersecurity, and quantum technologies. He hosts ‘The Hamilton Mann Conversation,’ a masterclass podcast on ‘Digital for Good’ and sits on the advisory board of the Ethical AI Governance Group (EAIGG), a diverse community of AI practitioners focused on democratizing the growth of ethical AI through best practices and innovations in AI development, deployment, and governance.

Topic: How to build an AI strategy

Quote: “One way to obtain AI operational consistency with guardrails and value-driven standards is to ensure that algorithms uphold not only a form of intelligence but also a form of integrity over time. This challenges the way we ‘teach’ AI.  Going forward the AI that is used will need to learn from data not only meaning but also the degree of its potential impact, and the possible misalignment with respect to a given value model.”
