AI News, Vatican, Microsoft team up on artificial intelligence ethics

Foldable phones, 5G and 'ethical A.I.' — what's on deck at one of tech's biggest conferences

Mobile World Congress (MWC), a massive conference for electronics and telecommunications companies, officially kicks off Monday in Barcelona, Spain.

Tech giants will launch some of their latest mobile products this weekend ahead of the event, while discussions about 5G technology and artificial intelligence (AI) will juxtapose trade tensions between the U.S. and China will take center stage.

'Foldable screens will accelerate the convergence between smartphones, tablets and laptops, progressively unleashing a new form factor,' Thomas Husson, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester, told CNBC in an email.

'I think a lot of operators will be stimulated by the fact that I can launch this phone and it will say 5G and that will be attractive to some consumers,' Thomas Noren, head of 5G commercialization at Sweden-based Ericsson, told CNBC in London this week.

The conference features dozens of keynote events about AI, including a panel discussion Monday night with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Daimler Chairman Dieter Zetsche about how to make technology like AI more inclusive.

As more companies adopt AI and machine learning, tech CEOs and government officials are voicing concerns that bias could be built into algorithms, affecting business decisions and policymaking.
