Please Vote for Unanimous AI at SXSW

In 2018, Unanimous AI was awarded BEST IN SHOW at the SXSW Innovation Awards and we aim to bring our Swarm AI technology back to Austin for next year’s festival. Unanimous is committed to using the power of Swarm Intelligence to solve the biggest challenges, and so we’ve proposed a panel and a workshop on two of the most pressing topics in our society: building an ethical AI, and battling “Fake News.”

Voting for the 2019 SXSW Panels has just opened, and we need your help to make sure our panel and workshop are selected for the festival. Please follow the links below to vote!

WORKSHOP: Using AI and Humans Swarms to Battle Fake News

Fake News is a significant problem for our democracy and society. With the rapid pace of information and the opportunity for misinformation to stoke division, it’s crucial we find powerful new solutions. Our interactive SXSW Workshop will be led by Unanimous AI, winners of “Best in Show” at the 2018 SXSW Innovation Awards. It will include diverse experts to discuss problems caused by Fake News, the challenges of identifying it, and a demonstration of how we can defeat it by connecting people together using AI algorithms – a technique called Swarm AI that is modeled after swarms in nature. The workshop will have live audience participation in a real “human swarm” to highlight the ability of Swarm AI technology to differentiate between real and Fake News.


PANEL: Averting Disaster by Building Human Ethics into AI

The ethics of AI may be the single most challenging issue for society to confront as the technology advances at an ever-increasing pace. The ethical implications will only get more challenging as AI systems get smarter and more deeply embedded in the fabric of society. Our panel of experts will discuss ethical issues in AI applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to medical diagnostics and military technologies and the impact of AI on privacy, bias, and jobs. We will explore different perspectives and consider tradeoffs between automation and retention of human values. We will discuss different approaches to integrating human ethics into AI systems, considering the most challenging cases, where the biggest threats exist.
