Deloitte and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland have collaborated to launch the Deloitte Initiative for AI and Learning, an AI research initiative aimed at improving educational opportunities and advancement for students and teachers.

The initiative will leverage UMB’s importance in data analytics and AI, as well as Deloitte’s experience in AI-enabled services and solutions for private and public sector clients . DIAL will build on previous Deloitte and Smith collaborations, such as Smith Analytics Consortium.

“The DIAL program allows Smith and Deloitte to continue their essential collaborations at the forefront of cutting-edge research and emerging technologies,” Wedad Elmaghraby, the dean’s operations management professor, said in a statement last week. “This includes partnering with local industry and federal partners to drive innovation for the public good, creatively challenging our students to take on analytical challenges in new and unexplored areas of significance, and investing in our understanding of ethical and trustworthy artificial intelligence to advance its potential promise.”

The Deloitte Institute on AI for Government, which is funding the initiative, has been at the center of Deloitte’s efforts in cooperation and research on AI, as well as related technologies in the public domain. The institute recently found that while government entities and public enterprises are beginning to understand the value of AI, many still need to improve cybersecurity, identify high-impact applications, and develop adequate project management frameworks for AI.

“Along with our longstanding work with the University of Maryland, DIAL will help provide policymakers, industry leaders, researchers and the general public with a deeper understanding of artificial intelligence,” said Darren Schneider, principal of Deloitte Consulting LLP in a statement.

DIAL will cover several topics related to AI, such as ensuring ethical safeguards for confidentiality, fairness and transparency. He will also discuss how government agencies can overcome barriers to AI and use this technology to advance diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as enterprise-level administration priorities. . Finally, it will also focus on AI-human interaction by improving the perception of AI among citizens, workers or organizations.
