Many emerging technologies present a double-edged sword—and thorny dilemmas. How can we harness innovation to improve lives and society? How can we avoid unintended, unforeseen harm?
Dr. Byron Gaskin explores questions about artificial intelligence (AI) and more at Booz Allen in his multifaceted role as an AI subject matter expert and senior data scientist focusing on health.
“We’re living in an interesting time,” says Byron. “A lot of AI concepts have existed for a while, but now we have the infrastructure to test and deploy these systems. That comes with its own set of issues.”
Here Byron shares his career path to the AI field, what he’s been working on at Booz Allen, and how to “make sure AI works in the way we would like it to, to build the future we want.”
