Investing in AI: Why LA is a Superstar

Event Details

In a recent Brookings Institution report: “The geography of AI," Los Angeles is labeled an ‘Early-Adopter’ along with 12 other metro areas. LA has a competitive advantage in developing ethical AI because of its diverse multi-ethnic population and world-renowned research institutions.

Did you know Angelenos hail from 140 countries and speak 224 languages? Thirty-five percent of the city’s residents are foreign-born, more than any other US city!

Dot.LA previously reported on how ‘early adopter’ cities like LA could help mitigate the problem of untrustworthy and biased AI technologies.

"A diverse, broadly distributed industry will likely develop fairer, more ethical products if it's developed in more places, and not just in the homogeneous Bay Area environment," said Mark Muro, senior fellow for the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings. "The homogeneity of the Bay Area AI development community is a problem. Having more research and adoption conducted in more places, and in cities with greater diversity, will be important.”

During this panel discussion, we'll explore why we see LA on its way to becoming a ‘superstar' by 2030 and a world leader in building ethical AI
