Highlight of our tech team’s week was attending the Digital Catapult event looking at practical, ethical AI. As well as healthy panel discussion a keynote featuring Lord Clement-Jones, the event also featured great examples of practical AI in action through a series of lightning talks. We were intrigued by the innovation in action at Ellpha, which is seeking to create a gender balanced world more quickly and using AI in that pursuit. CEO Stefanie Creff provided an example of Ellpha’s HR tool that can be used to spot implicit bias in text.

Hazy AI also presented a lightning talk to showcase their synthetic data generation tool that can reduce privacy concerns of AI data analytics conducted in the cloud. It was really fascinating to see the ways in which ethical AI is being moved forward, beyond just the conversation.

Another interesting start-up in attendance at the event was Loomi.ai. Loomi is creating personalised digital assistants that can essentially act as PAs – democratising access to administrative help (not just the CEO anymore!). It’s a fascinating concept and one that ties in neatly with where the future of work is said to be headed – less rote tasks and admin, more time for creative and strategic thinking.
