The annual LSE student-organised Artificial Intelligence in Business & Ethics (AIBE) Summit, which brings together industry experts, students and professionals, explores the latest innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and its ethical, social and economic implications. Recent topics covered included Governance and Accountability in AI, and Operationalising AI Ethics.

This year’s summit moved from an in-person event to a bi-monthly speaker series on Zoom over the year, minimising the disruption caused by COVID-19. The series was supported by gifts from alumni and friends.  
 
“With the help of LSE donors, we’ve been able to maintain the quality of, and engagement, with our content as we moved online. With a webinar license and digital marketing, we could attract more attendees and maximise our outreach,” said Miguel Larrucea Long (BSc Management, 2022), AIBE’s research officer. 
 
“We hosted some of the big names in AI and ethics — including Maria Axente, PwC’s Responsible AI Lead — and brought together hundreds of students from LSE and other universities,” said Anya Magotra (BSc International Relations, 2021), President of the 2021 summit.  
 
“Despite COVID-19, the funding has allowed us to continue putting on great events and reaching even more people than before – helping us fulfil our mission of democratising AI,” she continued. “Your continued support is hugely appreciated as AIBE continues to strive to be a platform to inform and inspire the AI leaders of the future.”
