"For 25 years, JCM Global along with sponsors that include the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and the American Gaming Association (AGA) have helped put on the Golf Classic, an event which helps raise money for the International Center for Responsible Gambling (ICRG). The mission of the ICRG is to help individuals and families affected by gambling disorders and help prevent the development of these issues through scientific research and evidence-based educational programming on gambling disorders and responsible gambling."

Responsible gambling (RG) algorithms appear to have become more complex and nuanced over time, with “AI” and “machine learning” serving as buzz words to signal their legitimacy. However, no matter how complex our models, they are only as valid as the data and outcomes upon which they are built and validated. This talk entreats the audience to return to basics and consider both the building blocks and pitfalls of RG algorithms. The talk will touch on the outcomes used to validate and evaluate these algorithms, how we distinguish involvement from risk for problems, potential algorithmic biases, and the proper use of algorithms within a larger RG system.

Dr. Sarah Nelson is the director for research at the Division on Addiction, Cambridge Health Alliance, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital, as well as an associate professor of psychology in the department of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

When Art Paikowsky became president of the National Center for Responsible Gaming, now the International Center, the focus on responsible gaming was intensifying. Under his leadership, the center expanded as new sports betting and iGaming sectors contributed funding. Paikowsky explains the grant application process and discusses impactful ongoing studies in an interview with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the Indian Gaming tradeshow in Anaheim in April.
